To all my fellow “Mass Effect” fans, Happy N7 Day!
The past few years have been uneventful in this annual celebration of this beloved sci-fi series. This year is very different. Not only did we get confirmation of a remastered version of the original trilogy that I spent so many hours lost in, Bioware announced another game is officially in the works!
Following the announcement of a remaster of the original trilogy coming next year, BioWare announced that a brand new Mass Effect game is currently in development, in a surprise announcement for N7 day.
Not much is known about the next installment in BioWare’s epic space opera, but the studio says a team of veterans at the company is working on it. Do not expect the game to come out anytime soon as BioWare general manager Casey Hudson noted in a blog post that the game is in “early stages” of development and the studio cannot share any additional details at this time.
As a fan of all things “Mass Effect,” I couldn’t be more excited. This year has sucked on so many levels. This announcement helps make it feel just a bit less awful.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I must start calibrating myself for the arrival of this game.
