Bioware open to Mass Effect spin-off
Bioware has made no secrets about the next Mass Effect game being worked on in Montreal. While details are slim about the new project, the developers have confirmed that the next game will not feature the fabled commander Shepard, nor will it be called “Mass Effect 4”.
The great thing about the Mass Effect franchise is that they didn’t just build on the legend of Shepard. This certainly wasn’t a one-man-show franchise. Over the course of three games we saw numerous characters and races, and in a recent interview, Bioware developers explained that there’s a ton of story left to tell in the Mass Effect universe.
It’d be cool to do something completely unrelated to the larger storyline
Speaking with OXM, Bioware’s Casey Hudson explained: “There’s so much that could be told in the Mass Effect universe. It’d be cool to do something completely unrelated to the larger storyline, like a story about a private investigator on the Citadel. Or maybe something detailing Garrus’ time in C-Sec.”
Those those aren’t the only ideas that Bioware is cooking up. The developers are looking at potential stories from Javik, Aria, Kai Leng, The Illusive Man, and a long list of colorful characters that were introduced along the journey in the original trilogy. Will we see these stories in the next Mass Effect game? The developers didn’t reveal any new details about the upcoming game in the interview, but they’ve sure got a lot of ideas.
