I figured that's what it was, but it's still not a "new" feature to the series. But it should still turn out much better than ME2's skill progression system.
Also, why was the "[Official]" tag removed?
It does seem like they're trying to make it look like a new feature. As you said, this was already available in Mass Effect 2. Of course, I'll be happy if they take it a step further by allowing you to further increase an ability (without having to choose a certain path just once).
As for that tag, it was removed in favour of the new tagging system. See here
