BioWare, the developer behind popular science fiction action RPG franchise Mass Effect, has been rumored to be working on Mass Effect 4, with gamers and fans eagerly awaiting any news on the yet-to-be-announced game.

Based on Twitter posts, AlphaWired had reportedly decoded that Mass Effect 4 game may be released either in late 2014 or early 2015. It predicted that these games will be rolled out during the Christmas holidays or early January but there is still no strong proof to suggest any other day.

BioWare had previously confirmed that it will now bring Commander Shepard back, after the completion of the original trilogy. Mass Effect 4's core features will be similar to that of Dragon Age: Inquisition. The game will be using the Frostbite 3 engine. It is likely that Mass Effect 4 will make its debut on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Aaryn Flynn, general manager at BioWare, had said that the company has not completely neglected the game and also stated that the technical aspects of the game will be coming out via developer dairies, Motoring Crunch reported. He also said that the company will release information on it over a stretch of time, when a fan asked him about the game.

Meanwhile, Michael Gamble, the series producer, has revealed that the developers of Mass Effect 4 were given a free go at developing creative projects they wanted for a week, and later the work would be reviewed and added to the game, if it is found to be worthwhile. "We gave the Mass Effect team a week, without restriction, to prototype new ideas. Watching 3 hours worth of WOWOMG now," he tweeted.

At the ongoing gaming event in Boston, PAX East, BioWare is holding panels related to different aspects of both Mass Effect and Dragon Age: Inquisition. And we are all eyes and ears for any information on Mass Effect 4.
