Nieuws: Mass Effect 3 eind 2011 of begin 2012

Casey Hudson, CEO Bioware, heeft laten weten dat we Mass Effect 3 aan het eind van 2011 of in het begin van 2012 kunnen verwachten.

Mass Effect 3

In gesprek met MTV liet Caey Hudson weten dat Bioware bezig is met de ontwikkeling van Mass Effect 3. Voordat ze meer informatie over de game willen geven, wachten ze eerst af wat de reacties zullen zijn op Mass Effect 2.

Quote:
“We’re already working on Mass Effect 3 right now. We do want to develop it in concert with listening to the way people are experiencing Mass Effect 2,” he said. “We’ve got a lot of DLC coming out for Mass Effect 2 that we’re also working on, and then we’ll kind of blend that into developing and finishing Mass Effect 3.

“We don’t want to take forever with it. We want people, to be able to conclude this trilogy, that have been with us over the years… [Development will be] along the same kind of time frame as Mass Effect 2,” – which could another two-year cycle like we’ve used to.

The Cerberus Network en DLC

Hoe lang het Cerberus Network zal blijven met zijn gratis content, kan niet worden gezegd. Verder liet Hudson ook vallen dat ze nieuwe content willen brengen met een link tussen het 2de en 3de deel van de Mass Effect trilogie:

“It’s tough to say how long we’ll continue to do Cerberus Network in terms of the free content, for example,” he revealed. “When you get Cerberus Network you get all this free stuff that’s been released. On an ongoing basis we plan to have the whole spectrum, from a free item all the way up to paid stuff and potentially larger packs that tell a big portion of the story – and we want to do that in a way that connects Mass Effect 2 to Mass Effect 3.

“I think we’ll be pretty close to the release of Mass Effect 3 before we really start focusing on that as the next story.”
