The Next Mass Effect Won't Be Called 'Mass Effect 4'

Jordan Haygood

If you were expecting the next entry in the Mass Effect series to be titled "Mass Effect 4," think again. BioWare wants to clarify that the game will not be called that, as they feel it just wouldn't be right. On the official BioWare forums, community developer Chris Priestly wrote that the only detail that has been confirmed about the new game is that Commander Shepard won't be featured.


Priestly said, "To call the next game Mass Effect 4 or ME4 is doing it a disservice and seems to cause a lot of confusion here." He went on to say that "we have already said that the Commander Shepard trilogy is over and that the next game will not feature him/her. 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. Wherever, whenever, whoever, etc will all be revealed years down the road when we actually start talking about it."


According to Priestly, it's far more accurate to think of this game as "what happens next set in the Mass Effect universe." BioWare expects gamers to speculate this next Mass Effect title, such as what characters it'll include and what the story is, but nothing will be officially announced for a long while.


Are you looking forward to the next Mass Effect game? Are you excited to get something completely new out of the Mass Effect universe?
