According to Bioware, Mass Effect 4, the latest game in the popular Sci-Fi RPG series, will be released in 2015. First announced at E3 this summer, Bioware promises not only that title will feature more of the gameplay that fans of the series have come to know and love, but also that the game it will feature an entirely new protagonist. On the subject of this new development, Bioware Community Manager Chris Priestly released the following statement:
“We have already said that the Commander Shepard trilogy is over and that the next [Mass Effect] game will not feature him/her. That is the only detail you have on the game. I see people saying ‘Well, they’ll have to pick a canon ending.’ No, because the game does not have to come after. Or before. Or off to the side. Or with characters you know. Or yaddayaddayadda”.
