BioWare: Mass Effect “It’s Very Much Alive”
BioWare’s Producer Mark Darrah and General Manager Casey Hudson both confirmed that the Mass Effect franchise is not forgotten and “there is still lot’s of stories to be told”
“We’re definitely not done with Mass Effect. 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,” says 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.”
BioWare has not made an update of the acclaimed Sci-Fi Shooter since 2017 when Mass Effect: Andromeda released. And it’s understandable as the Anthem project was very demanding, it started back in 2012 after the release of Mass Effect 3 by the supervision of Hudson.
Speaking of Andromeda, the report details that the project itself was rebooted numerous times, and that the final version of the game was actually completed in around 18 months. That’s pretty interesting to note, as BioWare had been teasing Mass Effect: Andromeda (then tentatively titled Mass Effect 4) as far back as 2012.
BioWare confirmed at VGA 2018 that Dragon Age was being developed alongside Anthem for quite a while, but is expected that after it’s release Mass Effect it’s next.
Mark Darrah shared this message together with the release of the teaser trailer:
“We have been working on a new Dragon Age game for quite a while now and I am pleased to finally tease the existence of this project!
While we won’t be sharing any details for now, I can tell you we have been building a new team around a core of Dragon Age veterans, people I’ve worked with on Dragon Age, Jade Empire, and some of whom I’ve worked with since the Baldur’s Gate days.
While I have been focused on Anthem, the rest of the team has been hard at work exploring ways to push BioWare’s storytelling to the next level.
I’m so excited to show you more!”
