Yesterday night Bioware unveiled a quick teaser of an upcoming title that they are working on. The short video clip (seen after the jump) has everyone scratching their heads trying to figure out what it is.
The header image shows some soldier person up high above a planet which seems to be Earth. Some have speculated that the gun looks a heck of a lot like the sniper rifles in Mass Effect, while others are pointing out the very Crysis-like weave on the soldiers armour.
What are we dealing with here? More ideas, a video as well as the full size image after the jump.
Below is the quick clip, we hope to see more soon.
For now, we are most definitely looking at The Crysis Age Effect, or something.
I have seen people saying that it is going to be a Mass Effect prequel based on earth. Others think that Bioware is hinting at a Crysis RPG. People with less creative minds are saying that its merely a teaser for Mass Effect 3.
Then there comes the question of what we would like it to be. Me? I think I would really like some sort of console and PC based Mass Effect MMO type thing. Although it has to rock and not suck like most of the other MMO’s I have played. Ok Bioware, so go do that… thanks.
What do you guys think? There are some interesting ideas through the source link below as well.

Kotakuâ€™s rumouring that the game BioWare teased yesterday with the image of a futuristic sniper is a multiplayer title set in the Mass Effect universe.
According to the siteâ€™s source, the gameâ€™s not a mass shooter, but more in line with the multiplayer aspect of recent Call of Duty titles.
The game apparently features the same sort of multiplayer progression as Call of Duty, and will come with a single-player component featuring a character other than Mass Effect 1 and 2â€™s Commander Shepard.
As Kotaku notes, BioWare Montreal, which has aided in Mass Effect 2 development, was seeking multiplayer programmers earlier this year to â€œtake existing single player user experiences and make them multiplayer safe.â€
BioWare co-founder Greg Zeschuk has also said that there will be more games set in the Mass Effect universe outside of the seriesâ€™ main trilogy.
BioWare offered further teases on the titleâ€™s identity after releasing the image, publishing cryptic clues related to temperatures and, apparently, steel.

A 3rd Person multiplayer shooter like Gears of War except set in the Mass Effect universe?
I would KILL for that.

Turns out it’s Major Coats from Mass Effect 3.
