BioWare has been flip-flopping over whether their newest title Mass Effect 3 should include a co-op mode. Mass Effect has always been designed for one single player to swap between the abilities of the two AI-Controlled teammates and we have never seen any sort of multiplayer functionality. That could all change this time around.
At E3 last week, BioWare co-founder Ray Muzyka addressed the rumor and he didn’t exactly shoot it down.
“We haven’t talked at all about multiplayer in the Mass Effect franchise, but we’re exploring multiplayer in all of our games and all of our franchises. It’s always an idea we’re interested in… The short answer is we have no comment on that. But we’re interested in the idea of multiplayer.”
Mass Effect 3 was originally scheduled to release this November. That would have been less that two year apart from its predecessor Mass Effect 2. However, as we all know, it has been pushed back several months to add some “finishing touches” to the game. Does this mean that it is possible that multiplayer is going to arise for the final chapter of this story? Only time will tell for sure.
