As many fans of the studio and the series know, BioWare confirmed in late 2020 that it was starting work on the franchise’s next major installment.. Tentatively called Mass Effect 5, little has been revealed about it since this announcement. However, a recent job posting suggests that the studio decided to change something important
Through a recent listing of jobs at BioWare, apparently Mass Effect 5 uses Unreal Engine 5 like the game engine. This would not be strange for many companies, but would be for BioWare, since its publisher EA has “recommended” to all its studios to use its internal Frostbite engine.. Remember, this is just a rumor, but during the job interview it is stated that experience with UnrealEngine4 + is an advantage. Why would it be an advantage if the game is developed on the Frostbite engine? The answer is maybe Unreal Engine 4 or 5 is the engine of the game.
Remember that most of the issues that Mass Effect: Andromeda went through were in large part due to Frostbite. And it is that it was developed with the internal engine of EA, and it was a big change for the studio, since the first three parts of the saga were made in Unreal.
