During a recent interview, the executive producer of Anthem, Mike Darrah, and general manager Casey Hudson, made it clear that BioWare still has confidence in the Mass Effect franchise, after Andromeda’s half-failure in 2017.
The last chapter of the highly acclaimed series, despite the excellent storytelling that was recognized, was in fact received with great enthusiasm by critics and by the players themselves, but due to some problems with the Frostbite graphics engine it made the animations a real disaster.
So it is logical to think BioWare doesn’t want to leave a bad memory of the series to its fans, so it is quite normal that it is going back to talk about the future of the series, with the new technologies and the investments made by the software house in the field of motion capture, that should finally receive the treatment it deserves.
“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,” said Darrah.
Hudson then said the following: “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.”
This last sentence, given the commitments of the software house in support of Anthem and the new title of Dragon Age on which it seems to be working, suggests that it will not be an immediate thing, and that the future of Mass Effect will have to wait a while little. But hope does not cost anything.
