Mass Effect 3 already in development, plans on finishing up the trilogy before the next console cycle

Mass Effect 2 is about to come out later this month, but developer BioWare is already at work on the third installment of the trilogy. “We are already at work on Mass Effect 3, building the first bits of the story, putting that together.” BioWare’s project manager Casey Hudson said to IGN.

Of course there will still be a wait between the 2nd and 3rd game, so BioWare is putting a focus on creating quality DLC for Mass Effect 2 to keep players happy until the third installment arrives.

It seems like the developer is going to work as hard as possible to get the next title out ASAP. “We always wanted to make sure that we got the entire trilogy of games done within this console’s life cycle. We didn’t want to take forever with it, so we definitely want to make Mass Effect 3 a fairly short turnaround, but also being that it needs to be a tremendous and epic conclusion to the trilogy.

Mass Effect 2 has a January 26th release date in North America and a January 29th release date in Europe. You can find the title on both the X-box 360 and PC
