Mass Effect 3 will not feature a traditional multiplayer component, but series’ executive producer Casey Hudson hasn’t ruled out the possibility of an online-only Mass Effect.
Speaking with the latest issue of Game Informer, Hudson said that while they have yet to figure out a way of bringing rooted online to the series, a massively multiplayer online game beyond Mass Effect 3 would ‘make sense’.
“A lot of people say that they want to see an MMO, I think that kind of makes sense for this universe,” Hudson told the magazine. “Part of what you’re trying to do is save the universe so you can live in it. That’s part of the promise, I think, for any great IP. It has to be a world worth saving.
“I think Mass Effect has that quality to it. If you get rid of the Reapers and win that, wouldn’t it be amazing to just live on the Citadel or just take ship to Omega? That makes sense.”
Mass Effect 3, the closure to the series’ trilogy, is out this holiday for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
