BioWare is looking to complete the Mass Effect
trilogy and get the "epic conclusion" out the door before the current console cycle is over. Speaking with IGN
, Project Manager Casey Hudson states that the developer is already at work on Mass Effect 3
and "definitely" wants to make it "a fairly short turnaround."
Considering that the first Mass Effect
rocked our galaxy in November 2007, followed by the sequel two years and a couple months
later, it remains to be seen what qualifies as a "short turnaround." A 2012 release is the natural expectation at this point, but the impatient among might prefer the kind of turnaround associated with the Left 4 Dead sequel
. Is that even enough time to finish all that DLC?
