The veteran sees the "definition of RPG" as being "pretty broad" with Mass Effect as prime example. It's "as much a shooter" as an RPG.
"We would," replied Dr. Ray Muzyka, during a Q&A with fans. "We haven't announced anything on that front, but yeah, I can see that being a very interesting combination."
"We are arguably doing that now. I see the definition of RPG as being pretty broad. We look at Mass Effect, I say, and I believe, that it's as much a shooter as it is an RPG. When you play it, it really feels that way."
"So I'd say we're approaching other genres by expanding what the definition of RPG is, and blending in features of other genres to enrich our game experiences and drawing in new fans," added RPG wizard Muzyka. Should Infinity Ward start trembling in fear?
Mass Effect 2 is being released on Xbox 360 and PC January 26th, 2010. Getting it?
