Mass Effect Producer Says The Series’ Future “Is Bright”
November 7th is a hallowed date for Mass Effect fans, the series’ dedicated collective of fans taking the occasion to show love to their favorite galaxy-exploring franchise. While players share their most beloved memories as Shepard and Ryder, developer BioWare also express their dedication in the form of a heartwarming video, this year’s celebration offering a retrospective of the N7 insignia.
A lovely look back is sure to give fans a bit of the ol’ nostalgia, but may be ultimately bittersweet upon realizing the Mass Effect series’ current hiatus. Following the 2017 release of Mass Effect Andromeda, the epic-scaled shooter was put on indefinite hold as creatives instead shifted focus toward other projects. Many fans have since questioned whether a new game would ever again materialize.
However, this N7 Day provides a bit of hope regarding a potential Mass Effect return, with BioWare suggesting a truly “bright” future in store for the spacefaring series. In addition to a sly nod from General Manager Casey Hudson, BioWare producer and prolific answerer of fan questions Mike Gamble has also professed his love for the Mass Effect IP, also going on to hint at the series’ stellar future ahead of it.
Happy #N7Day to everyone! I love this IP deeply, and we’ve grown together over the years as fans and developers in it. We still have stories left to tell in this universe…the future is bright.

Even while the Mass Effect series experiences a dry spell of titles, the N7 fandom has continued living on in various forms. Dark Horse recently unveiled a slick new collectible, ‘Andromeda’ has gone 4K for the Xbox One X, and fans have continued expressing their creativity with incredible cosplay. Even the latest season of Daredevil couldn’t help but sneak in a Mass Effect reference into the show, but we can’t exactly blame them for that when the Mass Effect series has become as popular as it is.
