BioWare has said that RPG sequel Mass Effect 3 will establish a 'new beginning' for the series, aside from inevitably bringing Shepard’s arduous battle against the Reapers to a close.
Speaking to CVG, marketing boss David Silverman reiterated BioWare’s plans to continue the franchise after the third game is done and dusted.
"We designed Mass Effect 3 to be a new beginning,” he said. "This series definitely doesn't end with Mass Effect 3."
Silverman added that BioWare is aiming to make its latest sci-fi extravaganza the best game in the company’s portfolio to date.
"We're making Mass Effect 3 to be the best game we've ever made. That would make it one of the best games ever, and we're hoping to see sales that reflect that," he said.
Mass Effect 3 is pencilled in for release on March 9, 2012.
