I placed was a small asterisk next to Electronic Arts' casual announcement of "something far-reaching from Mass Effect" in early 2011 during a financial call yesterday: maybe it was a mistake. Nothing Mass Effect-related was in EA's uncharacteristically detailed lineup for the next 12 months, but there was mention of a new Dragon Age game due to arrive between January and March 2011.
That would be quite the mistake, however. Thankfully, it wasn't one.
An EA spokesperson has just confirmed there was no confusion yesterday, and BioWare and EA are, indeed, cooking up something Mass Effect-related that will arrive sometime in early 2011.
"Both of those games [Mass Effect and Dragon Age] were referenced in our plans for the coming fiscal year," said the spokesperson.
Let your rampant and potentially misguided speculation...begin.
