BioWare has played down suggestions that fantasy role-player Dragon Age: Inquisition will share a “template” with the upcoming Mass Effect 4.
Responding via a post on NeoGAF, BioWare exec Aaryn Flynn explained that while there were similarities in development between the two games, the next Mass Effect would feel like its own unique experience.
“I’ve seen a few thoughts like this recently, and thought I’d weigh in as much as I can right now,” Flynn wrote. “I have a good idea where it’s coming from.
“All of our games are using Frostbite now. We’ve said the next Mass Effect (and our new IP, but I won’t expand on that yet) uses some of the technology from DAI. We’ve been enjoying building larger areas that you can explore with less friction, so that’ll be there as well.
“But after that, the next Mass Effect will be (and should be) drawing on its own rich and successful past more than what DAI would say it should do.”
