Mass Effect 4: BioWare Director Apologizes for Lack of Information

March 11, 2014 Updated: July 18, 2015

“Mass Effect 4,” if that’s what the next game in the franchise is called, hasn’t got an update in recent days, a BioWare manager said in an apology, because the firm is seeking to make a quality game rather than rushing it.

BioWare studio director Yanick Roy recently delivered an update about the game, which may or may not be called “Mass Effect 4,” a few days ago and apologized.

“I apologize for not having any new info on the next Mass Effect for you. It’s because our focus is on doing it right over doing it fast!” he wrote on Twitter.

“Mass Effect 3,” which was released in 2012, was considered the final game in the trilogy but left some fans with a sour taste in their mouth due to the final game’s controversial ending. But another game–unofficially titled “Mass Effect 4”–is slated to take place the same universe as the other three.

A few weeks ago, BioWare said they would be giving updates in the next coming weeks, but other than Roy’s statement, it’s been slim.

In February, BioWare manager Aaryn Flynn wrote about the alleged updates. “We have lots to talk about and show. It will take some time to cover all of it,” he tweeted.

He also indicated that there were talks to bring the first three games to the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. “We have discussed that internally. If we can put solid plans together we’ll share. Great to hear you’re keen,” he wrote March 2 on Twitter. 


Two months earlier, Flynn said that the next “Mass Effect” is playable.

“Great time playing the next Mass Effect game in Montreal. Ambitious. Beautiful. Fresh but recognizable. And fun!” he tweeted at the time.
