According to a new job listing, the next game in the Mass Effect series will have an online multiplayer component.

“Things are getting real now and I need an excellent Producer to come shape online for the next Mass Effect,” Senior development director Chris Wynn tweeted.

While nothing is known at this point what the online component will be, it wouldn’t be irrational to say it will probably end up being very similar to the successful multiplayer component of Mass Effect 3.

In terms of the game as a whole, all we know is that the next installment is in the middle of development” and that it will be “fresh but familiar”, not relating to Shepherd at all.

  • When I think of Mass Effect what comes to mind is great story, characters and difficult moral choice-making – not the multiplayer. Personally I would rather that they focussed on making the story, characters and combat better than creating a multiplayer component that everyone forgets about in the blink of an eye.

      The only multiplayer i think would be worth it would be coop so i can play through the story with a friend.

  • The moral decision making would be really interesting with another person’s opinion in the mix.
