A job posting from EA gives up rumors that Mass Effect 5 could use the Unreal Engine.
Publisher EA and developer BioWare are currently using a job ad looking for a technical manager. According to the description, this must have some experience with the Unreal Engine.
After BioWare announced a sequel to Mass Effect 5, there is much speculation about the exact content of the successor to the RPG saga. The published job description suggests that the Unreal Engine could be used instead of the Frostbite Engine in the future.
In the past, the developers have already used the Unreal Engine for the first three Mass Effect parts. For these, however, developers have to pay correspondingly high license fees to Epic Games. Therefore, Mass Effect: Andromeda and Anthem were developed on the basis of their own Frostbite engine.
Further details on Mass Effect 5 are expected on N7 Day on November 7th, 2021.
