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)."

personally, I liked ME2. I liked the varied environments, the lack of 100 identical planets to land on, and the too-streamlined-but-better-than-ME1 inventory system.

What I didn't like was the primary story. Yes, I actually liked all the recruitment/loyalty quests. But ME2's overall story felt...weak. honestly, the *story* felt more like an addon than a full, epic, holy shit story.

I'm trying to put this in a way that doesn't spoil it for those who haven't played through it. because it's still worth playing through, you just won't feel like the savior of the universe this time around. that's what bothered me...you're such an amazing badass and the entire galaxy sees it in the first. In the second one...not so much.

Nor do you get to decide the fate of an entire species, as you did in the first (and which has hints, during the second game, of maybe being something *actually* important for the 3rd game).
