The team working on the next Mass Effect game has now been announced by Bioware, and Halo 4’s lead writer Chris Schierf was added to the team in November 2013, according to a Bioware blog post.
Halo 4’s story was one of the most memorable of the franchise, beautifully portraying the close relationship and the bond formed between Cortana and Chief, and introducing a brand new group of villains: The Forerunners. With Schierf at the helm, Mass Effect could have an equally compelling story in its next game.
According to VG24/7:
Bioware is set to stream a Mass Effect 4 roundtable session at 6pm UK/1pm EST, and while not much is known about the title at present, Gamble said the next game will allow players to “explore and seek out new wonders” as well as provide “the freedom to chart their own course.”
