Mass Effect 3 will be the end of Commander Shepard’s story
BioWare has other “ambitious” plans to take the franchise forward.
Commander Shepard’s days are numbered. Not only are the Reapers hauling for his ass, BioWare too seems to be doubting the need of his services beyond Mass Effect 3.
Speaking to PC Gamer, CEO Dr. Ray Mazuka said that the final chapter in the RPG trilogy will also be the shutter for Commander Shepard’s story.
“We have ambitious plans to continue this franchise going forward. Mass Effect 3 is simultaneously a couple of different things; a thrilling and epic conclusion to the trilogy as we promised our fans we’d provide for Commander Shepard, but it’s also a brand new beginning – it’s an entry point for new fans and it’s also a brand new beginning,” he said.
With a universe has vast and rich as Mass Effect’s, a new story branch might actually be a good move.
Mass Effect 3 will release on March 6, 2012 for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
