Upcoming Mass Effect continuation to be developed in Unreal

NEWS

By Aron Gerencser December 20, 2021

The Frostbite engine doesn't seem to be working terribly well for EA anymore.

News that the next Mass Effect is snubbing it in favor of Unreal 5 doesn't paint any prettier a picture of things.

BioWare already has a less than rosy history with Frostbite.

They're switching gears and developing the next Mass Effect in Unreal 5.

First appearing in a job listing calling for experience with Unreal Engine 4 and 5, the news took off soon after.

While the job listing itself didn't directly name Mass Effect, Brendon Holmes who is currently a producer on the project, did.

We'll have to wait and see how the next Mass Effect shapes up in Unreal Engine 5.
