Mass Effect is not dead, says BioWare

However, thanks to a studio profile by Polygon (via PCGamer), we now know the future isn't completely dark for Commander Shepherd and crew.

In 2017, following the tepid reception to Mass Effect: Andromeda, a report said that the Mass Effect franchise was put on ice.

The future of BioWare's sci-fi RPG series Mass Effect has been up in the air for some time now. The game is regarded as a shambles and irreparable mess, doing so much harm to the Mass effect brand that many considered it effectively dead.

Mark Darrah, Executive Producer on Anthem and Dragon Age, went into further detail on what a new Mass Effect might look like. "There's a lot of stories to be told". General Manager Casey Hudson, who supervised the game during its concept phase before leaving BioWare for a while, revealed that the "critical path" (the main storyline) is a big one, though it won't have the finality of the critical path plots found in other games.

I think that really would have helped him [keeping Mike Phelan], had he had someone with that kind of experience. He further went on to reveal that managing in England was his ambition after finishing his stint at Paris.

BioWare has reiterated that the Mass Effect franchise is still very much alive, despite the fact it's done nothing since 2017's Mass Effect: Andromeda. I'm thinking all the time about things that I think will be great.

While making a new game right now is hard since they have their hands full with a new Dragon Age and Anthem, they are not putting the franchise to rest. "There's a lot of interesting space to be explored".

We didn't want to kind of just leak things out from zero all the way up to a hundred percent.

"With Anthem, we've made a bunch of guesses on what we think the community's going to enjoy", said Anthem director Jon Warner.
