Mass Effect 3 MMO is being talked about

Bioware founders have been think­ing about the pos­si­bil­i­ty of a Mass Effect MMO, some­thing I think we can all be excit­ed about should ideas meet devel­op­ment. Mass Effect is such a huge uni­verse that even the large in depth games dont real­ly begin to scratch the sur­face. Some­thing that has been acknowl­edged by the founders of Bioware.
Dr. Greg Zeschuk stat­ed, “It’s daunt­ing, but the neat thing is it would lend itself to a dif­fer­ent type of game play. It’s fun to think about,”.….“I imag­ine peo­ple think it would be just like Mass Effect as it is… but there’s lots of peo­ple there. It’s real­ly inter­est­ing, I don’t know. It’s a tough one.”
Dr. Ray Muzy­ka men­tioned a “pos­si­bil­i­ty space”, which is areas of the fran­chise that can and should be extend­ed. Muzy­ka had this to say. “When you deliv­er a game, and you deliv­er it for a play­er, you have to cap­ture what they think is the pos­si­bil­i­ty space,”.….“You need to let them do every­thing they think they should do, and you can’t block them from doing any­thing they think they should be able to do. You have to nail all the fea­tures and con­tent that should be in that pos­si­bil­i­ty space.”
Is this say­ing there will def­i­nite­ly be a ME MMO? No, but the pos­si­bil­i­ty of it is def­i­nite­ly there and should it go to devel­op­ment I would­n’t expect to see it release for quite some time. The uni­verse is huge and to do it right with all the con­tent would take years. But lets hope this is real­ized in a playable MMO, the pos­si­bil­i­ties are enor­mous and it would give SWTOR a good run for its mon­ey. (assum­ing SWTOR is still big by then)
