Mass Effect 5 release date speculation for PS5

If we were to make an educated guess, we speculate the Mass Effect 5 release date might be around 2025 or later for PS5 consoles and other hardware. It's also unlikely a release date will be revealed soon. This is mostly down to ME5 being Bioware's secondary project, Dragon Age Dreadwolf will release before the next space-faring voyage.

It's not crazy to assume that Mass Effect 5 will be coming to PlayStation, Xbox, and PC as BioWare has released all previous games on these systems. For now, we can only speculate that Mass Effect 5 will come to PS5 consoles. Fingers crossed BioWare officially confirms which consoles will receive the next instalment in this legendary sci-fi RPG soon.


Mass Effect 5 gameplay speculation

Information on Mass Effect 5's gameplay can be found here, but as it stands right now, we do not have any idea what the gameplay will look like. It wouldn't be a stretch to assume it will further improve upon the combat we saw in Andromeda and may bring back the Paragon and Renegade options that are a staple of the franchise.

Mass Effect 5 companion and romance speculation

BioWare is yet to give anything away about who our companions and possible romance options might be in Mass Effect 5. However, it wouldn't be the craziest idea to think Liara might be a viable option as both a companion and a romance opportunity.
