Mass Effect 4 Release Date: Dragon Age 3 Inquisition Getting all of BioWare’s Marketing Focus for 2014?

Mass Effect 4 recently was addressed by BioWare community manager Christ Priestly.

He touched on the firm’s marketing schedule for the game, which is tentatively titled “Mass Effect 4,” via BioWare’s official forum. He said he got a “few details” from the company before he left in 2013.

“I would guess that BioWare wants the focus of 2014 to be on Dragon Age: Inquisition,” he said on the forum. “DA2 was not loved by all fans *cough*, but it was an important step going from DA:O to what DA:I looks to be,” according to EuroGamer.

He added, “As such, and to ensure that DA:I will allow for much more DA content to come in the future (DLC for DAI, DA4/5/6 or whatever they get called, ancillary products, etc), I think this year’s E3 will heavily push Inquisition to the press and gamers. To announce whatever the next ME game is called at E3 would dilute BioWare focus.”

“I do hope [BioWare’s managers] drop a few hints, but I really doubt there will be any teasers, trailers or even substantial news interviews about MENext. Given that for some fans the last memory of the trilogy was a negative one, I think BioWare will want to really wow prospective ME fans to pay attention to a new title right out of the gate, rather than announcing a few details or teaser trailer, then going dark while DA:I takes centre stage.”

He said the next Mass Effect game will be BioWare’s focus next year.

Dragon Age: Inquisition will be launched in October.
