Bioware boss states the studio intends to return to Mass Effect "at some point"
Anthem developer Bioware just gave a big blowout of footage and information to their new game during 2018's EA Play presentation, preceding E3. We're excited to start forming our squads and customizing our Javelins, but we also can't help but be curious about the Mass Effect and Dragon Age series, the two behemoths that the developer worked nearly exclusively on for the last decade.
Luckily, there's a little hope that we haven't quite yet seen the end of either. As part of Game Informer's cover feature for the new multiplayer RPG, Bioware stated that both the Mass Effect and Dragon Age series are still very much alive in the eyes of their creator. “I would say a majority of the people at BioWare are working on Anthem, but we do have people who are figuring out what a next Dragon Age would look like." Hudson went on to state that the Mass Effect series "[is] my baby. I helped start Mass Effect from the beginning. Of course we intend to get back to it at some point.”
This isn't the first time that the sentiment has been voiced, last year EA VP mentioned that he "saw no reason why we shouldn't" return to the series at some point. So we're locked into Anthem for the time being, but there's hope down the road that we can return to some of the worlds that so many of us came to know over the past ten years.
