Mass Effect MMO Teased
BioWare co-founder, Dr. Greg Zeschuk has hinted that the company may look into a Mass Effect MMO once Star Wars: The Old Republic and Mass Effect 3 are released.
He said that making an MMO revolved around the Mass Effect universe would be easy to do thanks to all the lessons they have learned and are still learning from Star Wars: The Old Republic development.
“You never know, I think once The Old Republic is done, we’ll take a fresh look at the market. And we’ll have learned a lot. 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.” —Dr. Greg Zeschuk, BioWare co-founder
This hasn’t been the first time someone from BioWare has hinted a possible Mass Effect MMO. Mass Effect executive producer Casey Hudson said this recently:
“A lot of people say that they want to see an MMO, I think that kind of makes sense for this universe. Part of what you’re trying to do is save the universe so you can live in it. That’s part of the promise, I think, for any great IP. It has to be a world worth saving.”
What do you think? Would you be excited for a possible MMO for Mass Effect?
