Mass Effect Multiplayer?

A post on Game Blend cites a LinkedIn posting by EA recruiter Jeff Goldstein strongly suggesting that multiplayer support will be part of the future of the Mass Effect series of science fiction RPGs. Jeff's profile does have a note from a few weeks ago saying a Senior Multiplayer Engineer is one of the openings at BioWare Montréal, but Blend also has an image of a listing (which we cannot find on LinkedIn) calling for a "Multiplayer Programmer (Mass Effect Franchise)."

I like the fact that companies such as Bioware are experimenting with what and how our ideas of genres should be defined. (Where are all the stealth RTSs? :D) However, I'm skeptical about how well some of these ideas will translate to a multiplayer experience, as most of you are.

I'd hesitate to call either ME game a true RPG--as it is of course a hybrid of sorts--but it's not necessarily a bad thing that Bioware is trying something new to advance our favorite hobby, is it? I mean, just because it's never been done before, that doesn't mean it shouldn't be attempted, or that it would be "wrong" or "bad."

They're good at what they do, and what they do, they do quite well. It might not appeal to everyone, but that's what happens when you venture into new avenues. I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt.
