Really could just link to the BioWare Blog...

New game will be built at the BioWare Montreal location and not Edmonton like the past ones. Anyone hoping Casey Hudson is not going to be involved is out of luck, as he'll still be the Executive Producer. However, there'll be a Project Director making everyday decisions at the Montreal studio, so there is that.

That evolution now takes its next step, with the news that the next Mass Effect game is already in development, driven by the team here in Montreal. This is the goal we have been working toward for years now, and every member of our team is proud, excited, and humbled to take on the responsibility for the next game.

To ensure a proper and effective transition, we’ll continue to be supported by the Edmonton studio through the game’s development, working with and learning from them on some critical initiatives. On top of that, Casey remains the Executive Producer, but he will have a Project Director under him, working in Montreal, leading our development team and making day-to-day decisions for the game. We all care very much about Mass Effect and make our decisions based on what’s best for the game.

There is really not much I can tell you about the game right now, except that it will be built with the amazing technology of Frostbite as its foundation, enhanced by many of the systems that the Dragon Age III team has already spent a lot of time building.

The other thing I can tell you is that, while it will be very respectful of the heritage built over the course of the first three games, with the original trilogy now concluded and the switch over to a new engine, we are exploring new directions, both on the gameplay and story fronts. You can still expect the pillars the franchise is known for to be fully intact though, including diverse alien races, a huge galaxy to explore, and of course rich, cinematic storytelling.

I dunno... I bought the collector editions of 2 and 3 because I was so into the game, but 3 fell so flat that I didn't even go for the latest DLC. Seems like 3 had potential, even when I started it... but somewhere about a third of the way through, it went off the rails for me. The relationships in the game came unmoored and the gameplay felt rushed and repetitive. I finished it once, got the DLC to "fix" the end, but never played a second character through once I realized those hundreds of decision points all still ended at the same place. So, 4? meh.

I blame part (maybe all) of the downfall of Mass Effect 3 on the fact that Drew Karpyshyn, the writer of the first two games, wasn't involved at all. He did leave partway through ME2, but even still that held together in the long run better than ME3 did. It was almost like without Karpyshyn's ideas and wit, there wasn't an idea of how to wrap up the whole story in a way that made sense. Or not piss off a lot of people.

Not entirely. If for nothing more than to just see how Shepard's story concludes. Seeing how everything unfolds is kind of neat, though. Just uh, try to not punch the monitor too hard.

If you download and install the Extended Cut DLC before you finish a playthrough of the game then I think you will be happy with it.
If you were like me and finished it before the Extended Cut released then you would've punched your monitor and sworn uncontrollably at the old ending :P

Ya, that's what I keep hearing. Sounds like ME2 for me, I waited so long to play it that I played the complete experience with all the DLC and REALLY enjoyed the game. I'm assuming by now all the DLC that's going to be released is already out (this isn't Bethesda lol) so anytime in the future sounds like the best time to buy. I'll wait for it to hit rockbottom price and then scoop it up, I'm in no hurry since I'm still playing vanilla skyrim (well modded, but no DLC) and have a sizeable army of games waiting after it
