BioWare Founders Say Mass Effect MMO Is A Possibility

Posted on Monday, February 27 @ 12:21:56 Eastern by Keri_Honea

As diehard Mass Effect fans, we're very eager to play Commander Shepard's final story in the trilogy, but we're also eager to keep the Mass Effect universe alive. The multiplayer portion of Mass Effect 3 may satiate these cravings initially, but only one thing will appease us: a Mass Effect MMO.

The fans have discussed it, but in an interview with Penny Arcade, BioWare's founders hinted that such an MMO could be a possibility. 

"It's daunting, but the neat thing is it would lend itself to a different type of gameplay. It's fun to think about, " Dr. Greg Zeschuk said. "I imagine people think it would be just like Mass Effect as it is, but there's lots of people there...I don't know. It's a tough one."

Dr. Ray Muzyka further said that since Mass Effect has such a large universe, there are plenty of areas for the franchise to extend toward. The difficulty lies in determining what the players believe is possible, or the "possibility space."

"You need to let them do everything they think they shoud do, and you can't block them from doing anything they think they should be able to do. You have to nail all of the features and content that should be in that possibility space," he explained.

I think it goes without saying that it would be a massive undertaking, but since the studio tackled Star Wars' universe so well with The Old Republic, surely they can do the same with a universe they created.

I've never thought of playing an MMO before, but I would definitely pop that cherry in the name of Mass Effect.
