Wow, it's astonishing that nobody has made a blog yet about this. BioWare, in celebration of N7 Day, released a series of pics teasing the next game. It looks like ME4 is further along than anybody thought, and it's not unreasonable to expect a substantial announcement soon, perhaps at the VGAs.
(Also, yeah, I'm still lurking. No, this doesn't mean I'm back. The community here depresses me, where once it was my favorite online community. I mean, really guys? You're still whining at each other about the ending? What's done is done, move on. Please.

It appears that BioWare will be at Gamescom 2012 in Cologne. This news comes in under the radar, as they were not mentioned in EA's official press-release on the convention. There won't be a panel or anything, but Chris Priestly and Jessica Merizan will be holding what appears to be an informal meeting of some kind with the fans.
