Ever since Mass Effect: Andromeda launched, the future of the franchise has been in peril. The game was panned by critics and consumers alike for its numerous bugs and other performance issues. Even EA refused to comment on when we would see another game in the franchise. All future Mass Effect: Andromeda expansions were eventually cancelled and developer BioWare Montreal was disbanded.
Everyone assumed — what was only logical — that that was it for the Mass Effect franchise. However, it seems that aside from working on Dragon Age 4, BioWare is also developing another Mass Effect title.
In the "Mid-Summer Update" post on BioWare's blog, General Manager Casey Hudson said, "we hear loud and clear the interest in BioWare doing more Dragon Age and Mass Effect, so rest assured that we have some teams hidden away working on some secret stuff that I think you'll really like — we're just not ready to talk about any of it for a little while."
Hopefully the next Mass Effect will be a polished experience this time around. Mass Effect: Andromeda's semi-open world layout pushed the franchise is a new direction, but its technical flaws were more noticeable than its improvements. In order to revitalize the Mass Effect franchise, BioWare needs to make sure the project is technically sound and tells a cohesive story.
