Mass Effect 4 or the next Mass Effect game in the series has been confirmed by Bioware executive producer Casey Hudson who tweeted that the company was in the early design stages of a new Mass Effect title.
The tweet itself reads, "We're in early stages of designing a completely new Mass Effect game. What would you want to see in it?" which suggests that Hudson and team are looking to take the Mass Effect universe in an entirely new direction.
After three games following the same team in the same story arc it has always been a possibility that Bioware would look to expand their universe by telling new stories and visiting new timelines.
Mass Effect 3 was released earlier this year to critical acclaim however many gamers criticised Bioware for its choice of ending, this criticism was so overwhelming in fact that the developers released an update for the game which helped to shed light on why they chose that ending.
