On N7 Day, the franchise’s annual celebration, BioWare thanked fans for their support and discussed the future of the franchise and released new concept art.
“No matter when you joined us, through four games and more expansions, we can safely say that we are in this because of you, and every day N7 is a wonderful reminder of this,” wrote project director Mike Gamble.
In the tweet, Gamble also confirmed that fans have correctly deciphered the encrypted message left in a small teaser that shows the relay under construction.
“Although they should already know not to underestimate human defiance!” – Liara T’Soni (Doctor, Shadow Broker and <УДАЛЕНО>).
Mass Effect 5 was first announced at the 2020 Video Game Awards with a short teaser highlighting the return of longtime squad member Liara T’Soni. Since then, details about the sequel have been scarce, and one of the few concrete facts was that the game would run on the original trilogy’s Unreal Engine, rather than the Frostbite engine of the controversial fourth installment in the Mass Effect: Andromeda series.
