In the wake of news that its founders are retiring, BioWare has announced plans for another Mass Effect game, Mass Effect DLC, and an all-new game.

“We – including Ray and Greg – think the studio is solid and the team here is ready to embark on a whole new era of games.” wrote BioWare Edmonton & Montreal GM Aaryn Flynn.

“Executive Producer 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. But the Mass Effect universe is vast, and Casey and our teams have plans for another full game.”

Hudson was also developing a new IP, wrote Flynn.

“While Casey continues to oversee the development of our new Mass Effect project, he and his leads are putting together their vision for an all new game set in a fictional universe, built from the bottom-up with all new gaming technology.”

Yesterday, the studio announced it was working on Dragon Age III: Inquisition.
