Bundling Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2, Mass Effect 3 and various DLC depending on the host platform, the Mass Effect Trilogy boxed set released on Xbox 360 and PC in November 2012 and on PS3 the following month.
On Sunday, in response to a fan enquiry on Twitter, BioWare Edmonton and Montreal general manager Aaryn Flynn confirmed that the studio hasn't ruled out a next-gen release for the product.
@shinobi602 @YanickRRoy We have discussed that internally. If we can put solid plans together we'll share. Great to hear you're keen— Aaryn Flynn (@AarynFlynn) March 2, 2014
BioWare Montreal has taken over development duties on Mass Effect, with original developer BioWare Edmonton now working on a brand new IP. The story of Mass Effect 4 won't relate to Shepard or the events of the previous three games, while the new title will share "core systems" with Dragon Age 3.
In December, Flynn said that the next Mass Effect game is in a playable state and coming along nicely. "Great time playing the next Mass Effect game in Montreal," he teased. "Ambitious. Beautiful. Fresh but recognizable. And fun."
