Today during a special livestream event on N7 Day, BioWare released some new concept art for theupcoming new Mass Effect game for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Developers said they are trying hard to ensure that the next Mass Effect game is not Mass Effect 4, but rather, something much larger with more diverse worlds and characters. BioWare also revealed today that it has brought on Halo 4 writer Scott Schlerf to work on the upcoming Mass Effect game.
As for when we might get to see more of the next Mass Effect, BioWare wouldn't give a firm answer. However, the studio explained that it's making solid progress on the game, due in part to developers who worked on Dragon Age: Inquisition shifting over to Mass Effect now that the project is finished. As a result, BioWare might decide to show off the game in a few months, though the studio said it won't show anything more until it's ready.
Also during the event, BioWare developers revealed that the next Mass Effect will feature new alien races and species. The developer also explained that the game will focus on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, though a release for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 has not been ruled out.
