BioWare Is "Definitely Not Done" With The MASS EFFECT Series, According To Producer Mark Darrah

Although Mass Effect: Andromeda has been quite divisive among fans, the BioWare team is "definitely" not giving up on the once-great series, as Mark Darrah claims "there’s a lot of stories to be told..."

While BioWare is currently focused on finishing Anthem and working on Dragon Age 4, the studio doesn't forget about fans of its most famous brand – Mass Effect – at least according to Executive Producer Mark Darrah. Considering that the latest entry in the RPG series, Mass Effect Andromeda, debuted back in 2017 to lackluster sales and mixed critical reception, that's definitely good news.

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," Derrah said in an interview with Polygon. “In my mind, it’s very much alive,” BioWare's General Manager Casey Hudson added. “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.

Hudson, the project director of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and the Mass Effect trilogy, returned to BioWare nearly two years ago after the sudden departure of General Manager Aaryn Flynn.

The manager also teased the future for the Mass Effect universe in a promotional video for 2018's N7 Day back in November. The Twitter video showcased Hudson and other BioWare employees answering a simple question - what Mass Effect really meant to them. According to Hudson himself, "it means coming into the studio every day, dreaming about what the next great Mass Effect game will be."

The fact that BioWare's next big thing, online-oriented Anthem, has already gone gold, could possibly mean that the acclaimed studio may finally focus on Dragon Age 4 and a sequel to Andromeda.



Mass Effect: Andromeda takes you to the Andromeda galaxy, far beyond the Milky Way. There, you'll lead our fight for a new home in hostile territory - where WE are the aliens. Play as the Pathfinder - a leader of a squad of military-trained explorers - with deep progression and customisation systems. This is the story of humanity’s next chapter, and your choices throughout the game will determine our survival in the Andromeda Galaxy. As you unfold the mysteries of the Andromeda Galaxy and the hope for humanity lies on your shoulders - You must ask yourself - How far will you go?

Mass Effect: Andromeda was released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in 2017.
