Mass Effect 4: Will the Series Survive Without Shepard?

Mass Effect 4 (ME 4) is currently being developed by BioWare and very few is known about the upcoming plot and characters. What’s vastly known, however, is the fact that the previous main character, Commander Shepard, isn’t coming back. The question then arises; will the Mass Effect series be able to survive without Shepard? (Mass Effect 4, PC, PS4, Xbox One)

I'm sure it will survive and do well but the fact Shepard isn't involved any more has lowered my interest in the series a bit. And of course there's the way the last trilogy ended.

Yes, it won't die but the popularity and success will go down substantially.

For me the series died with the terrible ending of ME3.

Of course it will survive, i just dont understand why Bioware seems so hell bent on making sure Shepard is not in the series. Seems they want to be more generic like Elder Scrolls and Fallout, which to me removes some of the emotional attachment to the series, but i will still play it.

I think the series will suffer for the simple fact of Bioware getting players so attached to a main character, where decisions were supposed to matter to only find out, in the end they didn't. All the endings were pretty much the same with the same empty feeling. It was a huge letdown IMO. The next ME would have to pull me into it with a really good story, but I will always be afraid of being let down again.

It will be weird playing it on a different engine to unreal 4 as the 3rd engine did the series well.

I'm a fan of all three ME games. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing where and when the next installment will be set. Mass Effect is all about good story telling and interesting characters, and as long as they provide a compelling story with characters people gravitate toward the ME series will continue to sell well despite the negativity some folks continue to spout about the end of the trilogy.
