‘Mass Effect' Series On Hiatus Says Game Developer
Gamers of "Mass Effect" series will not be happy to know that BioWare has recently announced it will be on hiatus. However, it seems that this will not be permanent and only for the time being. Avid fans of the game have been wondering where the game is going and this might be their answer.
The Developer Will Act As A Support Studio
Apparently, Bioware has converted BioWare Montreal, the developer of "Mass Effect" series as just a support studio. It was revealed by a number of sources close to the game developer. However, Andrew Wilson, CEO of Electronic Arts, assured gamers that the decision to put the game on hold was not because of the cold reception for "Andromeda."
As a support studio, some employees at BioWare Montreal will be transferred to EA Motive which is headed by Jade Raymond. With this recent development, it is expected that BioWare and Motive will share the same studio space. Meanwhile, BioWare Montreal will continue its work on the bug fixes and patches for "Mass Effect: Andromeda" while it is on hiatus.
This Will Not Be The End Of 'Mass Effect'
However, sources close to the company say that this does not mean it will be the end of the "Mass Effect" series. BioWare is still intent on sustaining the popular sci-fi franchise. The company is just allowing the game to have a rest instead of assigning its staff to work on a follow-up sequel immediately.
Admittedly, this is not a good development for the "Mass Effect" series. However, things are really not that gloomy. In a conference call with investors held by the company on Tuesday, EA management has emphasized its support for the sci-fi franchise and its developer, BioWare Montreal. However, change is really coming in the studio, but only in personnel transfers and not downsizing, according to sources.
