BioWare working on new Mass Effect

BioWare reveal that there is a new Mass Effect in the works as its founders retire.

Despite Mass Effect 3 tying up the storyline, developer BioWare has confirmed that the company is working on a new full title in the video game series' universe.

The news comes just after the company's two co-founders Greg Zeschuk and Ray Muzyka revealed they will be leaving the firm.

BioWare Edmonton and Montreal general manager Aaryn Flynn said: "The Mass Effect universe is vast, and Casey
[executive producer Casey Hudson] and our teams have plans for another full game."

He has suggested that the company is looking for feedback from fans of the series who have opinions on where the game should go next. "We'd love to hear your ideas," he said.

Beyond Mass Effect, the team is also working on the recently announced Dragon Age III: Inquisition and another all-new title.

"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," Flynn continued.

The news of BioWare moving forward is welcome after Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk revealed they were leaving the firm. Muzyka suggested that he is done with the video game industry and wants to move on to different pastures to find new challenges, hinting at social/impact investing. However, he suggested it has been a very difficult decision.

Zeschuk meanwhile has said he has lost his passion for video games, the company itself and the "challenge of creation". He is moving on to brewing craft beer and working on his web-based interview show The Beer Diares.

In their departure blog posts, both co-founders had nothing but praise for their associated publisher Electronic Arts, as many people would have assumed they chose to move on from gaming due to the corporate nature of their work now.ADNFCR-1220-ID-801453123-ADNFCR
