BioWare asks if fans want Mass Effect prequel

Producer Casey Hudson solicits gamer feedback regarding if next Mass Effect game should take place before trilogy or after.

It appears the next Mass Effect game is only just beginning development. BioWare executive producer Casey Hudson asked his 30,000+ Twitter followers last night if they would prefer the next Mass Effect game to be a prequel to the original trilogy or a sequel.


"Parsing through your thoughts on the next #ME game," he wrote. "Would you be more interested in a game that takes place before the trilogy, or after?"

A follow-up to Mass Mass Effect 3 wasannounced in September. Just last week, BioWare revealed the project was in development at the studio's Montreal outfit under the direction of Hudson. The game will run on Battlefield technology Frostbite and will reportedly be "very respectful" of the franchise's history, though BioWare is pursuing "new directions" for the series with regards to gameplay and story.

Kind of agree, but it does have a huge universe so it can be expanded easily without hurting the series

How about some spin-offs?

Wrexing Crew
Super Turian
Professor Mordin and the Last Specter
Jack & Shepard

Ongoing bet with think-man: He wins if MH4 releases in any shape or form on PSV in 2013, I win if it doesn't.

id love a mass effect that was set during the prothean war

i want a sequel , fuck the prequels


I would like to see either honestly. A game centered around the protheans would be decent, but I would also like to see the fallout of Mass Effect 3 in the future.

not with humans

Proteans against reapers! XD

I wouldn't mind a prequel. I love the Mass Effect series and if they do it correctly it could be really good. Like doing the events of the game history like Turians vs Krogan war, the Geth revolution against the Quarians and even Shepard's mission where only he survived (can't remember the name). I think that could really be a cool idea.
