Next Mass Effect Will Be Shepard-less

Series Producer Says Commander Shepard’s Tour Of Duty Is Over.

While this is what most people have thought would happen with the series this is the first time (to my knowledge) that a higher up at Bioware has actually confirmed that the next Mass Effect will feature a new hero…or heroine.

Fabrice Condominas, a producer at Bioware Montreal, had this to say:

“There is one thing we are absolutely sure of – there will be no more Shepard, and the trilogy is over. This is really our starting point. Now the Mass Effect universe is vast, and very, very rich. So at this point in time, we don’t even know what kind of time frame we’re going to be in. All we’re doing is more gathering ideas from the teams, gathering feedback to see several things.”

It will be interesting to see how the Mass Effect universe will continue on after the whole fiasco about the game’s original ending (which I had no problem with) that may have led to the departure of Bioware co-founders Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk from the company earlier this year.

EA and Bioware are still releasing multiplayer content for Mass Effect 3 on a regular basis and a new single player mission named Omega will release on Xbox 360 on November 27th. You can find my review of the previous Mass Effect 3 single player DLC, Leviathan, here
