BioWare Stays Mute On Mass Effect 2

This is one of those times where many gamers will assume that "no news is good news."

Perhaps the biggest topic of this new generation revolves around exclusive titles, mainly because they're disappearing rapidly for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Most everything outside of first-party titles is going multiplatform, and with EA's involvement in BioWare's Mass Effect franchise, PS3 owners are definitely expecting to see the critically acclaimed RPG. Joystiq asked BioWare General Manager, Ray Muzyka, if "Mass Effect 2 would be an Xbox 360 exclusive again," and he simply replied-

"We haven't announced any specific plans yet with Mass Effect 2, so other than saying that I love the Mass Effect universe, I'll have to plead the fifth on this one!"

Okay, let's think logically on this one. The lack of announced "specific plans" makes us think the series will go multiplatform, because if it were going to stay exclusive, what's stopping him from saying that? What needs to be solidified? What needs to be cemented before such an announcement could be made? Nothing would've changed; the original was exclusive, so why not just say, "yep, the sequel is exclusive"? Well, maybe because they're waiting for EA to say that Mass Effect 2 must go to multiple platforms. Anybody else have any other interesting theories?

other than the graphic lag and the amount of loads(from one room to another)I enjoyed the story and game mechanics.I believe this game would of handled alot better on the PS3.Same with Bioshock,by all accounts should run smoother(if they took the time and care to do so)I did not buy the DLC from microsoft so I'll buy this ver. if it comes to light.

Silence means "yes" in my book. So I think Mass Effect 2 will go multi.
