Mass Effect: Andromeda Director Wishes a Sequel Was Made

Mass Effect: Andromeda creative director Mac Walters wishes that EA gave the development team room to improve upon the first game with a sequel. The game originally launched in 2017 to mixed reviews with many panning its unfinished state, underwhelming story and failure to live up to the legacy of the Mass Effect trilogy. BioWare figured that some room for improvement was needed before EA extinguished any hopes of a sequel getting made.

Speaking to Eurogamer recently, Walters talked about working on the original Mass Effect trilogy and how it evolved with each new entry. The director stated that the same would’ve applied to Andromeda‘s sequel as the team would’ve taken feedback into consideration and attempted to address those issues in a follow-up game. Unfortunately, Walters and his team never got the opportunity to develop a sequel as all plans were scrapped.

Walters detailed how a sequel to Mass Effect: Andromeda would’ve been a great thing for fans as well as the developers, stating:

“I only wish we had been able to then do a second one. You would have really seen that polish just like we did from [ME1] to [ME2] on the original [trilogy]. With Mass Effect, arguably there’s lots of things that we didn’t do right, but then we got to hone it and improve it on Two, and then perfect it on Three. With more time, Anthem was already trending to something that was actually pretty unique and interesting and had a really legitimate argument to be in the game space, but it just needed time to get there.”

Walters stated that he’s “a hundred percent certain” the team would’ve improved upon all of Andromeda‘s shortcomings in a sequel. The game’s development was rocky at best with pressure to innovate – something that Walters also admitted, saying, “It wasn’t just making another Mass Effect game, which the team was well on their way to doing, it was how do we do it and also innovate in more of an open-world space?”

While we may never get a proper sequel to Andromeda, BioWare is currently hard at work on the next Mass Effect game that aims to continue the story established in the original trilogy.
