Future of Mass Effect Teased As Casey Hudson Sips Some Coffee

BioWare Teases the Future of ‘Mass Effect’ On N7 Day Mass Effect Andromeda Finally Got Enhanced for Xbox One X, First Screenshots Out; Game Now Discounted

While it's not exactly a reveal or any sort of official confirmation that BioWare is even working on a new Mass Effect game, it's at least something, and heartening to hear that the Canadian developer is now formulating new ideas for its sci-fi RPG saga.

And it seems like BioWare boss Casey Hudson just used the studio's N7 Day Twitter post to hint at the future of Mass Effect. Mike Gamble, lead producer at BioWare, revealed this news and also explained the significance of the series in the video. We've played through an epic trilogy to see the end of Commander Shepard's story and then traveled to another galaxy for a brand new adventure in 2017's Mass Effect: Andromeda. If we had to bet, we'd guess that Andromeda can run at native 1800p resolution on Xbox One X with no need for checkerboard rendering. So that meaningful look seems like a playful reminder to fans on N7 Day that BioWare hasn't forgotten about them.

As part of today's N7 celebration for the series, Mass Effect: Andromeda is being updated to support the full 4K ultra HD capabilities on the Xbox One X console.

The nod toward the future is exciting for fans of the series, as the last installment, "Mass Effect: Andromeda" received a lukewarm response upon its release previous year.
