To Prequel or Not To Prequel: The Future of Mass Effect

With a recent tweet, Mass Effect’s producer Casey Hudson revealed that the next Mass Effect might be a prequel. Flynn R. from Leviathyn discusses whether that possibility is the right choice for the franchise. (Mass Effect 3, Mass Effect 3 – Special Edition, PC, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Its not that the ending was a disaster for the trilogy but i was so confused that it didnt set up the next installment. Its my favorite universe to date...period. I was hoping that decisions effected who lived and dies but that the ending would ultimately be the same kn a macro level. Maybe, u decide how it happens but essentially the universe is saved and shepphard is a hero. Then u can move on. Go 500 years into the future. A prequel will b bad because we will always hav the ending in r heads. But, it isnt story or the universe that worries me. That is the draw and will b fine. The reason bioware has stood out is ingenuity.
Now, they r asking ppl about dragon age and the new mass effect. Cmon? We dont know and dont wanna know. U have to go back to the drawing board and determine the future of video games. Thats what u do. Thats why mass effect was extrordinary. The conversation wheel, the decisions, the rpg element, characterization etc. I hav faith but it has dwindled a bit.

Here's the thing. BW never intended to make a sequel. The ending didn't leave room for one because that is what they wanted. For whatever reason, they really didn't think anyone was attached to it.

They have changed their position but the original idea was to end the universe completely.
