With the new Mass Effect game confirmed to be in development and with this being an official continuation of the series rather than a spin-off adventure like Andromeda was many people are wondering the same thing, what is happening with Commander Shepard?
To those that don’t know, and to avoid spoilers as much as I can here, Mass Effect 3 told a fitting conclusion to the story of the main protagonist of the series and as such where the next game will actually go is unknown. However in an interesting turn of events a physical copy of a teaser image released last year was put on Bioware’s online store that contained a sentence that alluded to the character by a suspicious amount it stated;
“Shepard’s final quest may have ended the threat of the Reapers but at great cost including Earth itself. While Shepard and the survivors are left to pick up the pieces, fans are left wondering what’s next.”
However shortly after this was discovered the listing was actually changed with Michael Gamble, project director on the new game, stating that the people putting the item on the store didn’t actually know about the story and as such the tagline description was simply a speculative statement rather than anything concrete. Still it’s odd that something like this would come out on Bioware’s own store so at the moment while there is no confirmation as to the return of Shepard it’s best to keep the options open. Who knows, maybe we will find out before the release of the Mass Effect TV show. Only time will tell.
That’s all for now, and as always. It’s not just a game, It’s a Life.
