The upcoming fourth game in the Mass Effect franchise is now far enough along to have a playable version of the game running in Bioware’s offices. Aaryn Flynn, the general manager for Bioware’s Edmonton and Montreal studios, announced on Wednesday that he was currently enjoying playing a working version of the game.

This was the first time that the developer hinted at just how far along development of the next Mass Effect game really is. Before Flynn’s announcement that the game is in a playable state, gamers didn’t know how far out of concept work on the title truly was. Even with the news that the upcoming Mass Effect game may be further along than previously believe, not much has been revealed about the title’s story other than the fact that it won’t star long-time series protagonist Commander Shepard’s story was fully tied up at the end of the third game. Because of these sense that the first three entries of the franchise followed Shepard, the next installment likely won’t be titled Mass Effect 4 in an effort to further separate the new game from the existing trilogy.

The next Mass Effect title is currently being developed at Bioware Montreal using the Frostbite 3 engine.
