Hip Hop and Entertainment News Magazine COMPLEX has played host to an interview with none other than Mac Walters (no relation) who has dropped a bombshell on the gaming world. After joining Bioware to drive Bugatti’s, make it rain on them oh’s, and simply re-write the ending to a series, M.W. (again, no relation) made mention that Mass Effect 4 (tentative title) will have nothing to do with past ME games. Here’s the exact quote below from Mr. Walters (no really, there’s no relation between me and this man):
- “The idea is that we have agreed to tell a story that doesn’t relate necessarily to any of the Shepard events at all, whatsoever.”
After this there’s more talk about how the game won’t be a spin-off, or at least won’t feel like one potentially. Beyond that, the Bioware rep also sends a mixed message about ME3’s ending. On the one hand he says they wouldn’t change anything looking back, but also says they addressed the negative fan response with the Extended Cut (specifically Citadel) despite lingering questions about the Dark Energy Ending and the creation of an alternate ending by fans / modding community, then finally rests on saying that it was a hard earned lesson that was taught to them about not giving choices after promising extremely branching endings as a finale to the ME series. What will the future hold? Only time tells. For now, other Bioware reps tell us that ME4 is in a “playable” state and that’s not much to go on so stay tuned for more as the story develops further.
