Polygon published an article based on the interview with Bioware and revealed some fascinating facts about Mass Effect. Talking to Mark Darrah Executive Producer on Anthem and Dragon Age, he spoke about his viewpoint on Mass Effect.
On asking about Mass Effect Darrah said they are not done with Mass Effect. There are lots of stories to be told. His statement about the Mass Effect franchise sounds positive and reflects enough clarity that Bioware is still considering the franchise in future. Below is an extract from Polygon’s article.
As for BioWare’s own space-opera franchise, Darrah says, “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.”
Casey Hudson Bioware General Manager added “In my mind, it’s very much alive. 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.”
On the ground of fitting Anthem model for Mass Effect or Dragon Age Game Director Jon Warner said, “Hey all of our games are now gonna be Anthem.” Warner thinks to give the game that make them true to themselves, so as and when needed Bioware will decide to take things out of the toolbox and build something exceptional, it all relies on the need.
In the end statement Warner spoke about closely listening to player’s feedback which will help Bioware to drive the experience forward. He also shared the live services will evolve and grow. Bioware is making adjustments and to deliver what is promised. Warner ended with an open to new ideas if they are big enough that require second iteration then there will be Anthem 2.
