We heard back in September how the next Mass Effect game may make use of the Unreal Engine instead of EA's in-house engine Frostbite. And now, it seems we've got another possible confirmation.

BioWare producer Brenon Holmes mentioned in a tweet yesterday how the company is currently seeking programmers with UE4/5 experience to help out with the next Mass Effect title.

The original Mass Effect trilogy ran on Unreal Engine 3 and the developers shifted across to EA's Frostbite - which reportedly contributed to development issues of Mass Effect: Andromeda. This year's Mass Effect: Legendary Edition returned to Unreal, so it's somewhat a relief to hear the series is likely sticking with Unreal moving forward.

Unfortunately, Mass Effect could still be quite a while away - with Windows Central noting how it likely won't show up until 2024 at the earliest, and other sources suggest it'll be a 2025 release.

Are you glad to hear the next ME game is likely being developed in Unreal Engine? Comment below.
