BioWare talks up next Mass Effect

The upcoming and untitled Mass Effect game this week passed a milestone review, with various developers speaking positively about the shape of the game thus far.

"In a milestone review for next Mass Effect game. Team is doing outstanding work. Looks beautiful, fun, ambitious, and Mass Effect-y!" executive producer Casey Hudson said on Twitter.

Assistant director of design Aidan Scanlan and community manager Jessica Merizan chimed in with positive statements about the progress made so far on the game.

Describing the game's progress in July, cinematic director Ken Thain said, "This sh**'s gettin' real!"

Though BioWare is enthused by the progress the next Mass Effect is making, the public won't get to see the game for some time, according to BioWare Montreal studio director Yanick Roy.

"Sadly, it probably will still be a while before we show anything publicly," he said.

BioWare announced the next Mass Effect game last September. It will not feature Commander Shepard, as his story came to a close in last year's Mass Effect 3.

The untitled game will run on the Frostbite 3 engine and, according to Hudson, will be "fresh and new."
