BioWare recently unveiled the new teaser trailer for the upcoming installment of the Mass Effect series, tentatively titled Mass Effect 5, which was first announced in 2020. The teaser showcases a mysterious female character wearing a concealing hat, who is speculated to be the beloved Liara T’Soni from the original trilogy as confirmed previously.
On EA’s website, there are additional clues in the form of text from Mass Effect: Andromeda, solidifying the theory that Mass Effect 5 will continue the storyline from both the original trilogy and Mass Effect: Andromeda, despite the 600-year time gap between the two and the characters being in different galaxies.
Mass Effect: Andromeda did not meet expectations, prompting BioWare to promise fans that they will try to regain their trust. Interestingly, many of the original Mass Effect team members have returned to collaborate with BioWare for the development of Mass Effect 5. This is undoubtedly good news for fans, as those who have experience during the series’ golden age will be working on the project.
There is currently no release date set for Mass Effect 5, and it is expected to take several more years before it hits the market. In the meantime, BioWare’s upcoming game, Dragon Age: Dreadwolf, also remains without a confirmed release date.
TLDR: BioWare has teased the next installment of the Mass Effect series, tentatively titled Mass Effect 5, by releasing a short teaser trailer featuring a mysterious female character. EA’s website hints at a connection between the original trilogy and Mass Effect: Andromeda. Mass Effect 5 is still in early development, and its release date is yet to be announced. In the meantime, BioWare is also working on Dragon Age: Dreadwolf.
