BioWare has stated that the narrative gap between Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3 will be told entirely through a “constant stream” of downloadable content.

“We have a bunch of packs that are in the works right now,” said BioWare’s project director Casey Hudson.

“So, for the time being there’s going to be a continued stream of DLC for people.

“We’ll start to have packs that’ll tell the story between Mass Effect 2 and 3. But beyond that we kind of have to see how people are responding to what we have and go from there.

“It probably won’t be for quite a few months that we talk about Mass Effect 3.”

The next DLC pack for Mass Effect 2, “Overlord,” is scheduled for release next month.
