Just when you think the Mass Effect series is out, Bioware says that they're not quite done with the franchise and hope to make more games in the series.
In an interview with Polygon, Mark Darrah, the executive producer Anthem and the Dragon Age series, says that Bioware is "definitely not done with Mass Effect." There’s a lot of stories to be told," Darrah told the website. "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."
Casey Hudson, the executive producer of the Mass Effect trilogy, added "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.”
When Mass Effect Andromeda was released back in 2017, it was met with lukewarm reviews by critics and panned by fans of the series. Both were highly critical of the game's facial animations for its human models, weak supporting cast, and questionable writing. After the disappointing response, sources from Kotaku reported that Bioware Montreal, the studio behind Mass Effect Andromeda, was being downsized and that the franchise would be put on ice for the time being.
Let's not forget Bioware's latest game, Anthem, is set to release today, and so far people who played it early aren't really satisfied with it. So what do you think? Should they still "poke the dead horse" because, in my opinion, they just won't be able to capture the magic of the original trilogy. Don't get me wrong I really want them to, but its highly unlikely.
