Mass Effect – new game planned, ME3 Omega DLC due in fall

Tuesday, 18th September 2012 20:49 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Mass Effect 3 has more content on the way, and BioWare Edmonton and Montreal general manager Aaryn Flynn has plans for another Mass Effect are being mulled around.

Speaking in a blog post on the official BioWare webiste, along with the announcement of Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk’s departure from the firm after 20 years, Flynn said the latest single-player DLC for Mass Effect 3 coming this fall will be called “Omega”.

“Casey Hudson and his team are coming off an amazing eight-year run with the Mass Effect trilogy, but they’re not done yet,” wrote Flynn. “We are releasing more multiplayer content and we have more single-player stories coming throughout the next six months, including Omega which is coming in the Fall.

“But the Mass Effect universe is vast, and Casey and our teams have plans for another full game. Where to go next? With such a project has been a question a lot of us have been asking, and we’d all love to hear your ideas.”

There’s also more on the slate than a new Mass Effect and Dragon Age 3, according to Flynn.

“While Casey continues to oversee the development of our new Mass Effect project, he and his leads are putting together their vision for an all new game set in a fictional universe, built from the bottom-up with all new gaming technology,” he said.

“As the GM for Edmonton and Montreal, I know that creative people are delivering new content and gameplay for established franchises, and new games that go in new directions.

“Ray and Greg built BioWare to last. They’ve always known their retirement would come one day, so they developed a team of people who would ensure their standards and culture would endure. We’ll humbly carry that torch and continue learning in the process.”

Zeschuk and Muzyka both announced their retirement from BioWare this afternoon, after rumors of a planned departure started swirling in April.

    Can we get the indoctrination theory worked into the ending of 3 or possibly lead into a future Mass Effect title please Bioware.

    It was never part of the game they have said this numerous times on the forums. The writer themselves said this. People just create their own reality and refuse the one that’s right in front of their face.

    @1 From what I hear, the indoctrination theory was full of holes anyways. I really don’t see the problem with the current ending, pretty sure all the “fans” were just whining for nothing.

    As for the Omega DLC, I was talking to friend about the retaking of Omega a while back. If this is it, I am over the moon :D

    For another game, I would like to see another type of game, like an RTS or something. I mean, the third person shooter was great, but it seems to be what all games are now :/ When the first Mass Effect came out, third person shooters were relatively un-used.

    @4 Err yeah they have, they said it was wrong when they announced Extended Cut. Stop denying what is there and accepting what isn’t.

    I am not going to dig through their forums to find it. You can just see that the indoctrination theory isn’t true in the fact that they have done 2 dlcs that had further expanded the ending that was there originally. No reconning.

    You seem to think highly of yourself if you think I am upset. I just find it idiotic to ask for them to completely recon the last 2 dlcs(6 months of work) just for a minority to get what they want. The evidence is right there staring you in the face.

    @1 They are probably not going to start where Mass Effect 3 ended for their next title, but probably even before the events of Mass Effect 1 happened. At least that’s the impression I got when their interviews. And as for the indoctrination thing, although it would’ve been interesting if they had made it the end of ME3, it is clearly dismissed now.

    They should waited for next gen.
    This one is already on its limit and full of corridor and weird colors

    There is nothing idiotic about having a differing viewpoint to an ending that was not straight forward and open to interpretation,god forbid i have a differing viewpoint to yours though,none of the developers have so far gone on record as outright dismissing the indoctrination theory,probably because it garners more interest in the game for them and more sales through subsequent DLC,it would have made for a far more interesting ending in my opinion,which i am entitled to have without being called and idiot for “creating my own reality”

    @Phoenixblight and Froseidon Guys I think Custard Ganet is indoctrinated. There’s no reason to argue with him. He’s off in his own world.
