Mass Effect 4 – Release Date
It is under development in the Bioware studios in Montreal. There is no actual news regarding the release date or even the release year. It is likely that it will be launched for the next generation console of PS4 and the Xbox One and also for the PC. It is expected that the game will be released sometime in the year 2014.
Many are suggesting that the game will not be released in 2014 and might even go on to 2015. This is because the Bioware team is considering a remake of their original Mass Effect Trilogy for the Xbox One. This will take up a lot of valuable resources and also time and might result in the delay of the creation of Mass Effect 4. When the Mass Effect 4 is released, it is likely to be launched exclusively in case of the Sony PS4 and also for Microsoft Xbox One. This is because the game has huge system requirements.

Not Related to Shepard Storyline
The writer Mac Walters, who had written Mass Effect 3, claims that the new Mass Effect 4 will not in any way be connected to the existing trilogy. This implies that the Mass Effect 3 is the last you will see of Shepard. This also means that Mass Effect 4 will bring in a new universe. The rumor also goes that the story will not be related to any of the Shepard events in any way, according to Walters. The key factor in the game play will be that it has to be a Mass Effect type of game, but without the presence of the Shepard character or his companions. The story will not relate to Shepard and also to the previous three games. However, the new game will have the core systems of the next game from BioWare, namely Dragon Age: Inquisition.
