Yesterday BioWare teased us with a mystery screen shot and binary codes. Today rumors are swirling that the unannounced game is actually a Mass Effect multiplayer spin-off, which I've named "Mass Effect of Duty."

Mass Effect 1 and 2 are sci-fi RPGs with no multiplayer elements. According to an unnamed "development source" BioWare Montreal is working on a spin-off game that will appeal more to the Call of Duty demographic. The source went on to tell Kotaku that the game would follow the same formula as CoD and Halo: A light story mode and heavy on multiplayer. The single-player lead would not be Commander Shepard.
BioWare Montreal announced several months ago that they were looking for multiplayer programmers. BioWare's co-founder, Greg Zeschuck, mentioned in a past interview that other games that take place in the Mass Effect universe but aren't a part of the current Mass Effect trilogy could be made. Does this mean we could be getting Mass Effect Online?
In yesterday's post, many of you speculated in the comments that this game could be a FPS set in the Mass Effect universe taking place during the Contact Wars. Some G4 readers said they didn't care what the game was as long as it wasn't a "Mass Effect ODST." If the development source is right, that could be exactly what we're getting.
I guess we'll have to wait until December 11 to know for sure.
