Mass Effect: Andromeda was supposed to be the definitive Mass Effect experience, as it moved towards an open-region structure. While the exploration and combat were great, the basic plot and performance issues heavily detracted from the experience. Even months later, it still stuttered on Xbox One. However, what was most upsetting to gamers was that fact that it left a lot of plot points unresolved.
Ever since Mass Effect: Andromeda failed to generate critical acclaim and sales, it seemed as though EA had placed the franchise on hold. However, it seems like that hold has just been lifted and we may see another Mass Effect game sooner rather than later. Today, on N7 Day, BioWare discussed what was next for Mass Effect.
Towards the end, Casey Hudson teases the future of the franchise and lifts up a mug that has Commander Shepard’s catchphrase “I should go” on it. It’s unclear what this means, but it could point towards Mass Effect 4, and not a spin-off like Mass Effect: Andromeda. Will we see the return of Commander Shepard after he’s been reconstructed again like the beginning of Mass Effect 2? Only time will tell.
Mass Effect: Andromeda follows a group of human explorers as they try to find a new home in the Andromeda Galaxy. However, there are other beings on the journey too as each species has its own space ship, known as an “Ark.” If you haven’t played Mass Effect: Andromeda yet, be sure to check out the game at retailers.
