Should Mass Effect 4 be a Prequel or a Sequel? BioWare Wants to Know
Written Tuesday, November 20, 2012 By Lee BradleyView author's profile
BioWare is canvassing for ideas in relation to Mass Effect 4.
Speaking on Twitter, executive producer Casey Hudson asked fans if they wanted the game to be a prequel or a sequel.
"Parsing through your thoughts on the next #ME game. Would you be more interested in a game that takes place before the trilogy, or after?", he wrote.
Hudson has a track record of reaching out to fans for their thoughts on the game. In November the exec producer revealed that BioWare was in the early stages of designing the sci-fi RPG and then quizzed Twitter for ideas.
"We're in early stages of designing a completely new Mass Effect game. What would you want to see in it?" he asked.
It’s all rather interesting when filtered through the events following the release of Mass Effect 3, when fan outrage pressured BioWare into fiddling with the ending to the trilogy.
In light of those events, which contributed to co-founders Greg Zeschuck and Ray Muzyka’s shock retirement, it seems BioWare is now more intent on making sure they give fans exactly what they want. But have they lost their nerve?
Or, alternatively, is Hudson just engaging the community with sweet little teases and I’m reading too much into it?
Probably the latter.
