We know that a new Mass Effect is in development, and just a few months ago we were shown some glimpses of concept art from the game, but until now we haven’t really heard much about the game itself. According to Shinboi, that’ll change at E3 this year.

This isn’t exactly all the unexpected, however, considering we reported in May 2014 that the game was about halfway through its development stage. This, may or may not have changed since that time as game development is a constantly changing process, but all signs are pointing towards an E3 2015 reveal. Normally we’d say this is a no brainer, but with many supposed big E3 reveals coming and going over the last couple years, you never really know for sure anymore. Fallout 4 anyone?

With the release of Dragon Age: Inquisition out of the way, there’s now reportedly over 200 people working on the next Mass Effect and the game has entered full production stages.

As for a release date, it would seem that Bioware is aiming for a 2016 release. I would imagine though that the game is still far from completion, and will probably release around the same time Dragon Age: Inquisition did in 2014, which would be late in the year.

Not much to go off of obviously, but with Shinobi’s track record, there’s probably a pretty good chance of it being true unless things change over time. Either way, you know the drill with rumors and speculation. We’ll be sure to keep you updated on all the latest regarding the next Mass Effect so be sure to stay tuned to OnlySP on Facebook and Twitter.

  1. This makes sense. I would expect it in 2016. That’s 4 long years after ME3. It really should be coming out this year.

    1. Keep in mind most of Bioware’s staff was on Dragon Age for the past couple years. About only 50 people we’re working on Mass Effect. Now there’s over 200.

  2. it will probably be shown at ms press conf first and then more so at EA

  3. As long as the new title is similar in mechanics to the 2nd and 3rd, and keeps the story fresh, either with a cool new enemy that is as incredible as the reapers, or maybe just a exploration based game, then I will be happy to wait!

  4. 2016 is ok, I want a quality game like the rest of the series were.

  5. I want them to reveal that they’ve been working with Drew Karpyshyn on the next story. That would really make my day.
