Mass Effect Andromeda was the last release of the franchise. The fourth installment came out back in 2017 and received mixed reviews. So such an extent some even claim it to be one of the worst games ever. Therefore, going by these judgments it is very difficult to state whether there is going to be Mass Effect Season 5. Kotaku has revealed that Bioware Montreal Studio is presently working on other projects such as Anthem and Star Wars Battlefront II. So let’s spill the tea about the future aspect of Mass effect Season 5.
Is Mass Effect season 5 coming out?
On November 7, 2019, it was asked on twitter by Mike Gamble the project director at Bioware, that do they go on with the series for the future? Later in a report by Kotaku, it was officially confirmed in 2020 that Mass effect 5 is presently under development at Bioware’s Edmonton Studio.
It was also stated by Mark Darrah the executive producer that,
“We’re definitely not done with Mass Effect. There’s a lot of stories to be told. We could pull on the threads we put down with Andromeda; we could pull on threads from Mass Effect 3. There’s a lot of interesting space to be explored”. As informed by GamesRadar.
What can we expect to see in Mass Effect Season 5?
BioWare might be taking some massive steps towards the upcoming series after the poorly received fourth installment. Mass Effect season 5 will have several loopholes to be filled and overcome. The trilogy of Mass Effect was one of the most acclaimed RPG series ever made. However, Andromeda which was the fourth installment has been poorly claimed. The initiative was taken by the new Montreal Team rather than BioWare’s main Edmonton.
This can mean that players will be landing on Milky Way Galaxy which can be a more likely prequel of the franchise after the ending of season 3 of Mass Effect. There can also be a series of new events take can possibly take place in the new season. Bioware could possibly include several playable alien races, space combat, or challenges for the fans to enjoy in season 5 of Mass effect.
However, there hasn’t been any official announcement about what will Mass Effect 5 deals with. If there are any further new updates we will definitely let you know.
