Ray Muzyka has said a Mass Effect MMO is possible, but there are no plans for such a venture back at BioWare headquarters.

Speaking with CVG at E3, the firm’s co-founder said for now, SWTOR is the company’s focus in the MMO space and that it will be supported for years after launch.

“We have some really cool stuff going on with our Virginia studio out of BioWare Mythic,” he said, “[where] we’re exploring new types of online play.

“We also have some new things in the pipe we haven’t announced yet out of our Edmonton studio… We’re obviously looking at Mass Effect, Dragon Age – they’re epic franchises, and we have more things planned in the future. Mass Effect 3 is the beginning of a Galactic war. The future’s bright.”

Mass Effect 3 is slated for a March release, while Star Wars: The Old Republic is expected sometime later this year.
