Ahead of “Mass Effect 4”–or whatever developer BioWare decides to call it–the “Mass Effect” trilogy is being considered for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
The games could have improved textures as well as 1080p and 60 frames-per-second, according to reports this week.
Aaryn Flynn, the manager of BioWare’s Edmonton and Montreal studios, wrote on Twitter there were talks about bringing the first three games to the next-generation platforms.
“We have discussed that internally. If we can put solid plans together we’ll share. Great to hear you’re keen,” he wrote Sunday.
This would mean that the 2007 game “Mass Effect,” 2010’s “Mass Effect 2” and “Mass Effect 3” released 2012 will be ported. The original games were released on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Windows PC.
A developer with BioWare has said that there will be updates coming in a few weeks for the next “Mass Effect” project, which could be called “Mass Effect 4.”
The Gamer Headlines reported a few weeks ago that developers is working on a cinematic trailer for the game.
Bioware will be releasing blogs about the progress on the game in coming weeks, according to the gaming website.
Announcements will be spread out over a period of time until March, the Gamer Headlines said.
“We have lots to talk about and show. It will take some time to cover all of it,” Flynn wrote on Twitter two weeks ago.
Another report said that Reapers–which were big part of the previous three games–won’t have as large a role.
“We are starting to get ready to develop another Mass Effect game, and it’s going to be a new thing. We want to be able to give fans an opportunity to get back into the world with these things you’ve come to know and love about the Mass Effect experience but start something fresh and new — a new way for you to explore the whole universe in Mass Effect,” the company stated.
It added: “There’s so much that could be told in the Mass Effect universe. It’d be cool to do something completely unrelated to the larger storyline, like a story about a private investigator on the Citadel…”
