Mass Effect series creative director, Mac Walters, has said that while the upcoming Mass Effect Andromeda is not the start of a new trilogy, it is unlikely to be the final chapter in the franchise.
New Mass Effect games are very likely to drop after Andromeda
Speaking on Twitter, Walkers commented, "To be clear: Just because Andromeda isn’t start of a trilogy, doesn’t mean we haven’t been planning for future adventures. Just not 3 acts." Quizzed by a fan if Andromeda would be the final Mass Effect title, Walters replied: "Not by a long shot. There are so many stories left to tell..."
"At the end of this, we want it to feel like a story has completed," he said of Andromeda’s story. "Yes, for the universe, there’s much more you could explore, and we want to tease that, but it feels like its own story. It’s like, ‘Great. I had my Ryder sibling becoming-a-hero story. What’s next? Is it going to be Ryder? Is it going to be something else? Who knows?‘"
Elsewhere, he confirmed that further details on the game’s voice cast, including that of the main villain, will be revealed “soon enough.” BioWare previously confirmed the voice talent behind the Ryder family during an in-depth feature with Game Informer.
Publisher Electronic Arts has yet to announce a Mass Effect Andromeda release date, although it has said we can expect the game to drop for PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One in spring 2017. Yesterday, developer BioWare revealed a new Mass Effect Andromeda trailer as part of the annual N7 Day celebrations.
