New Mass Effect news possibly coming at SDCC

mass-effect-bannerIt’s been awhile since we’ve heard anything about the next Mass Effect game beyond, well… that there will be a new Mass Effect game released at some point in the relatively near future.  And by relatively, I mean before the heat death of the universe.  But we might be finally on the verge of getting some actual details about the game.  Read on for the details.

Bioware is returning to the San Diego Comic Con, and it looks like they’re bring Mass Effect with them.  The company will be taking part in a panel entitled Charting a Course: Developing the Next Mass Effect, which will hopefully be our first chance to get some details on the mysterious 4th entry in the Mass Effect franchise.  Panelists will include lead animator Carl Boulay, producer Fabrice Condominas, producer Mike Gamble, senior artist Noel Lukasewich, and community manager Jessica Merizan.  The panel’s official description notes that the panelists will “discuss what it’s like to expand on a well-established and beloved video game franchise,” and “share their experiences in shaping the next Mass Effect game with new possibilities while staying true to the critically acclaimed series.”

The panel will be held on July 26th, from 2:00pm to 3:00pm in room 25ABC.  If you’re planning on attending SDCC, reading this article contractually obligates you to not only attend the panel, but to also report back to us with a detailed description of everything that was said.  Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation.

The announcement of the SDCC panel comes on the same day that producer Mike Gamble tweeted a link to a survey, asking for feedback from fans on what they want the next Mass Effect game to be.  In addition to questions pertaining directly to the game, the survey also asks about other favorite games and general gaming habits.  You can take the survey here.

    Joe was born in a time of war. A console war. Two electronic titans were locked in a heated battle for the living rooms of America. Which titans, you ask? Well, the Fairchild Channel F and the Atari 2600 of course. You see, Joe is old. So many of his favorite games tend to be on the older side as well. But that hasn’t stopped him from developing unhealthy obsessions with such modern franchises as Halo and Mass Effect. Just don’t tell him how long it’s been since the original Metroid was released. His aging heart can’t take the shock.
