Mass Effect 4 is “somewhere in the middle” of development, according to Bioware Montréal studio director Yanick Roy.

Work on the next game in the franchise started in late 2012, and if in mid-development, that would put the game up for release sometime around October 2015, according to Eurogamer.

The next Mass Effect game hasn’t been titled yet, so the world is calling it Mass Effect 4 for the time being. It’s unknown at present whether it is a prequel or sequel, but Bioware has promised it will be respectful to earlier games in the franchise.

Last we heard, the game was in a playable state, and the design document is also complete. It is being built using Frostbite 2.

ME4 won’t contain “Shepard 2″ as a protagonist, with Bioware hinting that the game is a “new thing” for the series.
