BioWare has offered a new tease concerning possible spin-offs to the Mass Effect series. Executive producer Casey Hudson, who is leading development on the next Mass Effect, told OXM it would be "cool" for an upcoming game to tell an entirely new story, separate from the main arc.
"There's so much that could be told in the Mass Effect universe," Hudson said. "It'd be cool to do something completely unrelated to the larger storyline, like a story about a private investigator on the Citadel. Or maybe something detailing Garrus' time in C-Sec."
Other BioWare staffers like Mac Walters (lead writer), Dusty Everman (level designer), Mike Gamble (producer), and Preston Watamaniuk (lead designer) said characters like Aria, The Illusive Man, Kai Leng, and Javik would all be deserving of their own spin-offs.
BioWare announced the next Mass Effect game last September. It will not feature Commander Shepard, as his story came to a close in last year's Mass Effect 3. The untitled game will run on the Frostbite 3 engine and according to Hudson, will be "fresh and new."
In addition to a new Mass Effect, BioWare is building an all-new IP and continues to work with Legendary Pictures on an upcoming Mass Effect film.
