BioWare is looking to hire a new technical art director. The job is part of the studio located in Edmonton, Canada. You might think, so what? But the interesting thing about this is in the job description that hints to Mass Effect 4.
The company says that they need a technical art director for their best franchises. Which franchises could they be referring to? It could be about the Mass Effect 4 or maybe an upcoming installment in the action role-playing video game series. Either way, something is on the way, and we can’t wait to find out more details.
We also thought that the company might have hinted on the Dragon Age 4; however, the game was already announced, which means it doesn’t make sense to hire a technical art director. BioWare has referred to a franchise, so it is more likely related to the Mass Effect 4 video game.
Mass Effect 4 or A Mass Effect Remastered Title?
“You will be the most senior engineering lead on the next major title in one of BioWare’s most prestigious franchises, and a contributing leader to BioWare studio strategy,” reads the listing. “You will partner with the other disciplines to build the technology and the programming team to deliver amazing player experiences.”
Reading the listing, it really makes sense to think about the new Mass Effect-related game. However, we also thought that this might mean that the company is up for a remaster of the Mass Effect series, or maybe a remake of the trilogy.
However, the former makes more sense than a remake. If we are realistic, the game series is not that old for a remake yet. However, a remaster of the game is quite an acceptable outcome. Maybe the company wants to send the remastered trilogy to an external studio. There is not so much information regarding this subject at the moment, but time will tell more about Mass Effect 4 or a Mass Effect-related game.
