With the announcement of Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk retiring today, general manager of BioWare Montreal and Edmonton Aaryn Flynn talked about what's next for the studio.

In addition to yesterday's announcement of Dragon Age 3: Inquisition, Flynn says Mass Effect executive producer Casey Hudson has plans for another full game in the series. BioWare is also planning a new game set in a fictional universe that is being built with "all new gaming technology."

You can read Flynn's full letter right here. Below is an excerpt about the projects.

Dragon Age 3: Inquisition – Yesterday, we announced that BioWare is now developing the next chapter of the Dragon Age series. Executive Producer Mark Darrah and our teams have been meeting with fans about what they want in a new Dragon Age game. I love spending time with the Dragon Age team as they work on Inquisition. The thought-provoking discussions, the fun, and most of all, the discovery of what’s possible on a new engine is both exhilarating and humbling.

Mass Effect – Executive Producer Casey Hudson and his team are coming off an amazing eight-year run with the Mass Effect trilogy. But they’re not done yet. We are releasing more multiplayer content and we have more single-player stories coming throughout the next six months, including Omega which is coming in the Fall. But the Mass Effect universe is vast, and Casey and our teams have plans for another full game. “Where to go next?” with such a project has been a question a lot of us have been asking, and we’d all love to hear your ideas.

Brand New Games From BioWare – Both Dragon Age and Mass Effect started as single games but grew into vast universes. But we aren’t stopping there. While Casey continues to oversee the development of our new Mass Effect project, he and his leads are putting together their vision for an all new game set in a fictional universe, built from the bottom-up with all new gaming technology.
