Just that and only that. Is that simple enough? I think it is.
Make the game, sell it as is, pump the price to $100 I don't care, just don't massacre it and sell an impaired version.
And then make bloody ME5 with ME5 in the tile not ME5 that is not ME5 but DLC1, DLC2, DLC3, …, DLC5637.
But to add something more…
Bioware's Aaryn Flynn said to some journalists that the new game will not ignore the original trilogy and that there is a possibility we'll meet some of "old" characters.
Knowing Aria is a thousand years old "bitch" in the trilogy, I bet we'll meet her no matter which timeline the new game will be set in.
