If they are redoing it from the ground up i reckon its either going to be set in the distant past or more likely the far off future of the Mass Effect universe. The amount of things they could change if they set in a few centuries after the Mass Effect trilogy, I am going to explode from the anticipation!!!
Theyre not rebooting it, it's set in the same universe, it isn't a sequel either, they have said they want to distance themselves from making it ME4. However this doesn't mean it can't be set after ME3, but it is very doubtful.
I'd say it was a prequel or something that happens concurrently with the trilogy, if a prequel I don't think it would be with the trilogy characters - maybe one or two, I am hoping for it being set as humanity are just being brought into the alien contact, you could have a prologue around the first contact war and then experience humanity discovering everything for the first time, colonisation etc.
If not that then no humans at all, go way earlier and be an alien in a dragon age style story.
(Also, this new IP should be good - it will have no moaning about lack of features from previous games at least).
