Mass Effect to get online multiplayer

Bioware job listing lets cat out of bag

Bioware is developing an online multiplayer component to the Mass Effect series, according to a new job listing.

A job vacancy at Bioware's Montreal studio - posted by EA senior recruiter Jeff Goldstein on LinkedIn - is entitled 'Multiplayer programmer (Mass Effect Franchise)'.

It continues: 'We are working on Mass Effect, one of the industry's most acclaimed and beloved franchises... Multiplayer programmers ensure the game engine and game systems work reliably and efficiently in a multiplayer environment. They... take existing single-player user experiences and make them multiplayer safe.'

The job listing has since been removed, but those clever cats at CinemaBlend have posted a screen grab.

A Mass Effect movie is also reportedly in the works. the release is being created by Hollywood studio Legendary Pictures.
