Fans have been asking for a Mass Effect MMO for some time now, and BioWare has made comments about it making sense when looking at the universe before, but we haven’t seen anything concrete yet. Well… we aren’t seeing anything concrete right now either, but BioWare is hinting at a Mass Effect MMO.
In an interview with IndustryGamers, when asked if we would ever see an MMO set in the Mass Effect universe, BioWare co-founder Greg Zeschuk said: “You never know. I think once The Old Republic is done, we’ll take a fresh look at the market.
“While making it, you learn an enormous amount. It’s one of the nice things about having these properties in our back pocket… If we want to use something we own as a source for a game, it’s easy to do. So yeah, you never know. We’ve got this giant product to launch, but once that’s done we’ll consider next steps.”
Fellow co-founder Ray Muzyka added: “We’re focused very much on The Old Republic, Mass Effect 3 and [our free-to-play game] Wrath of Heroes, and all the other things we’ve announced, and haven’t announced, but we also have the opportunity to look at our franchises in a way we haven’t ever before. There are lots of new platforms and lots of new business models.”
Well, our fingers our crossed. A Mass Effect MMO would be epic. But no concrete information yet, so all we can do right now is hope.
Stay tuned, we’ll keep you updated.
