Video game developer BioWare has announced that it is working on a new single-player downloadable content pack for Mass Effect 3 called Omega, which will launch during the fall, as well as planning more updates and operations for the multiplayer side of the game.
Aaron Flynn, who is the general manager of the Edmonton and the Montreal BioWare studios, has stated, “Casey Hudson and his team are coming off an amazing eight-year run with the Mass Effect trilogy, but they’re not done yet. We are releasing more multiplayer content and we have more single-player stories coming throughout the next six months, including Omega which is coming in the Fall.”
The developer also talked about a potential new game in the series, adding, “But the Mass Effect universe is vast, and Casey and our teams have plans for another full game. Where to go next? With such a project has been a question a lot of us have been asking, and we’d all love to hear your ideas.”
Soon after Mass Effect 3
was launched, fans began commenting unfavorably on the ending on the game, which has prompted BioWare to create and then launch a piece of free DLC that added more details to the endgame.
Since then, BioWare
has also delivered the Leviathan single-player DLC, which explores one of the mysteries that was only mentioned in the game series.
It’s not clear what the Omega DLC might include, but the name suggests that players might return to one of the most iconic locations of the game.
The announcements about the future of Mass Effect 3 and the series as a whole come just as doctors Zeschuk and Muzyka have announced that they are leaving BioWare in order to pursue their passions.
Electronic Arts has not yet announced how the leadership of the studio will change.
