BioWare: Mass Effect 2 Teaser 'Absolutely True'

Throwing more fuel on the fire, BioWare has teased a few more details regarding Mass Effect 2, telling Shacknews that while the game will indeed make use of saved data from the original--so hold on to those saves--the recent teaser trailer was all true as well.

"How can it fit? That's a surprise," teased BioWare CEO Ray Muzyka.

In case you haven't seen it, that teaser concludes with word that original Mass Effect protagonist Commander Shephard was "killed in action." Of course, there's always the chance that BioWare is utilizing some Kenobi-style "certain point of view" logic here.

The sci-fi action-RPG sequel is due to hit PC and Xbox 360 in early 2010. Below is the relevant bit of our conversation with BioWare heads Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk:

Ray Muzyka: Everything we've said before about keeping your save games, keeping the continuity of the trilogy, is absolutely true. Everything we've said in the teaser is absolutely true as well. What does that mean?! How can it fit? That's a surprise.

Greg Zeschuk: We're full of secrets and mysteries.

Ray Muzyka: And you know, the fans are talking it up. We're excited by the reaction, because we released it knowing it would provoke that kind of reaction. And you know, it's a teaser, right? But we'll have more to show soon, and I think the fans are going to be very satisfied.
