Old News: BioWare does not want you to refer to the next Mass Effect game as Mass Effect 4. Doing so would imply it was a sequel to Commander Shepard's story.

But that doesn't mean it will be a prequel, either.

"To call the next game Mass Effect 4 or ME4 is doing it a disservice and seems to cause a lot of confusion here," BioWare community manager Chris Priestly wrote on the company's forums.

"Thinking of the next Mass Effect game as Mass Effect 4 would imply a certain linearity, a straight evolution of the gameplay and story of the first three games," he wrote. "That doesn't mean that events of the first three games and the choices you made won't get recognised, but they likely won't be what this new story will focus on.

Questioned as to whether the next Mass Effect game could still feature the same galaxy, the same alien races, and honour the series' existing lore and history, Roy suggested it would. - "What makes it Mass Effect is indeed the alien races, the technology, the lore, history, etc. You can safely expect those in the next Mass Effect."

‘Mass Effect 4’ potential release dates hinted for PS4 and possibly more systems - Several insiders may have hinted at the release date window for the tentatively-titled “Mass Effect 4.” According to a report from B-Ten on April 24, a member of the Bioware development team apparently teased that fans should play the first three games from the “Mass Effect” series before next spring. His comments suggested that Bioware could be preparing a release sometime during the spring 2015 window.

The same individual claimed that Bioware and Electronic Arts won’t be commenting on the potential release date for “Mass Effect 4.” The development for the project was initially announced by the studio in late 2012. Although no real asset for the software product has been shown so far, Electronic Arts could theoretically provide a first look at the upcoming E3 2014 event in June.

Mass Effect 4 Comic-Con Panel

Bioware has given us a little more info about Mass Effect 4...

ME4 will be set during the same time period as the Mass Effect Trilogy (Not the past or in the distant future where our favorite races have gone extinct)

The Mako is coming back (hopefully it won't be such a challenge to get around planets this time)


You will be able to choose your character's gender (it's Bioware, after all)

Your character - shown wearing N7 armor - will likely be an N7 operative like Shepard (N7 are part of the Alliance so that means we will be playing as a Human)


Multiplayer is coming back and Bioware is focusing more on co-op more so than competitive...(personally, I'm hoping for a co-op campaign)

That's about it for the info...we're finally getting some...it's coming in slow but it's happening...
