BioWare insist Mass Effect is not finished

Mass Effect 3 Commander Shepard

BioWare and EA are "definitely not done" with the Mass Effect series.

In a studio profile on Polygon, Anthem’s executive producer Mike Darrah and general manager Casey Hudson insisted that BioWare and EA are not finished with the Mass Effect series.

“We’re definitely not done with Mass Effect,” said Darrah. “There’s a lot of stories to be told. We could pull on the threads we put down with Andromeda; we could pull on threads from Mass Effect 3. There’s a lot of interesting space to be explored.”

“In my mind, it’s very much alive,” added Hudson. “I’m thinking all the time about things that I think will be great. It’s just a matter of getting back to it as soon as we can.”

A new Mass Effect game won’t be coming out any time soon as BioWare are making a new Dragon Age title, in addition to continually updating Anthem after the controversial shooter is released. However, although Andromeda was an underwhelming disaster that became a meme with its “sorry, my face is tired” animations, the Mass Effect series is beloved and definitely deserves another chance.

While the knee-jerk reaction from fans will be to recast Commander Shepard as the protagonist, BioWare should again feature new heroes and travel to unexplored parts of space to avoid making Mass Effect 3’s multi-choice ending redundant. In addition to a new Mass Effect game, myself and many others wouldn’t say no to a next-generation port of the war against the Reapers.
