"confident" they are of DLC the studio is building, how it'll be "satisfying for players".
The studio has the "DLC team, and main team" on the go. More new content to come after looking at "responses from the fans"; see what they want.
"While we have not announced ME3 yet, just that it is a trilogy," said Muzyka, they're confident that the DLC "we are building will be satisfying for players,” he told .
“I think it’s one of the things we learned from Mass Effect 1 – now we have two different teams working at the same time”, added co-boss Zeschuk. “We have the DLC team, and main team, and are now able to lay it out and plan it."
Mass Effect had two pieces of DLC but the way the game was put together made any new content a large undertaking. Mass Effect 2 was designed to be much more open to new adventures that could be 'slotted in' by the studio.
"Also, we are listening to fan response by providing things that interest them, such as the Hammerhead which is coming up pretty soon, and there may be more of that" if fan response is positive, noted Zeschuk.
"So there’s some things we want to do, but also take a look at responses from the fans”. So far none of the released content from BioWare for ME2 has come with a price tag but that changes April 6th with its first premium offering - 'Kasumi's Stolen Memory'.
This PDLC will add another new member to the squad, a female thief, who asks you to help her tackle an art collector who's gone rogue. It can either be done before or after the suicide mission in the game, depending on the outcome.
The Firewalker DLC which adds the Hammerhead hover tank is out later this month, and is given freely to all with an activated Cerberus Network attached to their account.
