November 7 was a special day for Mass Effect players. BioWare did not forget about this day either, and a new video was published in order to take a look back at the history of the game. The surprising thing was that the video also appeared to hint at a future for the series.
This means that Mass Effect is not really over, and players have once again a reason to hope for a Mass Effect 5: Andromeda sequel. This is something that was not certain anymore, since Mass Effect: Andromeda has quite a disappointing launch last year.
Bioware and EA have not forgotten about Mass Effect
Mass Effect players also received another surprise, just in time for the N7 day. A surprise patch was released for Mass Effect: Andromeda on Xbox One X. The patch weights in at 1.68 GB, and now the game is running in 4k, which is a major improvement.
“You’re very near and dear to [Mass Effect], are we, as creators, and we want to make sure there’s a future. But that comes after Anthem, after all that stuff we’re talking about. That’s future,” declared Mike Gamble, former Mass Effect producer. This is what he said at E3 last year, so maybe fans should not lose hope just yet.
Future of Bioware
The future of Bioware games is not as blurry as it used to be. Casey Hudson, Bioware general manager posted a series of tweets which seem to clarify things:
“Some weird stuff going around about how our future games will be influenced by Anthem,” the first Tweet read. “Of course when we do a Dragon Age game it will be designed from the ground up based on what Dragon Age should be. Same with Mass Effect…” added the manager.
“Anthem is a specific thing that’s unique from our other IPs in many ways,” he added, noting stories that are circulating, regarding the other games taking a lead from Anthem. “What carries forward is what we learn about game design, which is a constant evolution,” concluded Hudson.
