A report published this past week said that the game is called Mass Effect: Origins. Yanick Roy, head of BioWare Montreal, said on Twitter yesterday that this gossip is wrong:
If I was trying to come up with a made-up name for the next Mass Effect, I sure wouldn't pick Origins...
This is the second false title shot down by Roy this spring. The previous debunked title was Mass Effect: Contact. That rumor was capitalizing on speculation that the game could take place during the First Contact War - even though that wouldn't work that well.
