BioWare’s new Mass Effect game will feature online play, according to a tweet from Senior Development Director Chris Wynn. Wynn tweeted a link for a job listing for an online content producer on the game.
Things are getting real now and I need an excellent Producer to come shape online for the next Mass Effect – http://t.co/L4G3OBAn87

The job posting for Online Producer at BioWare Montreal wants someone to “Create and champion the vision of the multi-player, connected experiences and online features of the game which respects the project leadership goals and be accountable for the quality targets and the results achieved.”
The next entry in the Mass Effect series, set to break away from the Commander Shepard trilogy, is being written by Halo 4 scribe Chris Schlerf. The game is said to concentrate on exploration, and will see the return of the Mako, the infamous ATV from the first game.
Is BioWare’s push for online content in the next Mass Effect game the reason why the company cancelled production on Shadow Realms?
