Former BioWare writer Drew Karpyshyn recently talked about the controversial ending to , has widely been branded a disappointment. Eventually, news of the game’s rushed development came out. So, if Karpyshyn’s theory of time crunches is correct, then BioWare may have a troubling pattern on its hands.
Last month, BioWare briefly confirmed that the studio is, in fact, working on new Mass Effect projects. Moving forward, it’s important to keep in mind that, despite the loud criticism that elements of Mass Effect 3 and much of Andromeda received, both games have plenty of merit. What’s more, a bit of a break might be precisely what Mass Effect needs in order to return revitalized. The original game’s ability to surprise and introduce refreshing changes to established genres and tropes was what made it so compelling in the first place. As long as BioWare is afforded the time they need to flesh out the story and gameplay, then, hopefully, gamers will have another acclaimed Mass Effect series on the way.
