BioWare Montreal Developing New Mass Effect Using The Frostbite Engine

BioWare Montreal is taking the lead on development of the next Mass Effect. The team previously worked on cinematics, N7 missions, and post-release content for Mass Effect 2, and multiplayer/single-player content for Mass Effect 3. The next Mass Effect will make use of EA’s Frostbite engine, which studio director Yanick Roy says is “enhanced by many of the systems that the Dragon Age III team has already spent a lot of time building.”

Yanick Roy said : “The other thing I can tell you is that, while it will be very respectful of the heritage built over the course of the first three games, with the original trilogy now concluded and the switch over to a new engine, we are exploring new directions, both on the gameplay and story fronts. You can still expect the pillars the franchise is known for to be fully intact though, including diverse alien races, a huge galaxy to explore, and of course rich, cinematic storytelling.”

“We’re all looking forward to telling you more about this next Mass Effect game, but it’s probably going to be quite a while before you hear from us again. We know you have high expectations for the franchise and we want to make sure whatever we show you lives up to those expectations.”
