Despite retiring four years ago, Bioware co-founder is still incredibly excited for Mass Effect: Andromeda that will be releasing at the start of 2017. The game is heading in a different direction, and based on the title a different galaxy, but Greg Zeschuk has revealed his anticipation for the space-faring series nonetheless.
I think people can be pretty confident it’s in really good hands,” he told Gamespot. “A lot of the folks working on it are core, Mass Effect team people. I know there’s been concerns like, ‘They’re going to go strange directions’ or whatever. But I’m pretty confident that what they have planned is going to be pretty incredible.”
For the first time, Zeschuk will experience a Mass Effect game completely from the outside only having seen work on the game in its very early stages of development. He’s excited to play the title from the perspective of the fans this time around:
“I’m really pumped about it; I can’t wait to play it as a consumer. The best thing about leaving BioWare is being able to play BioWare games without knowing everything that’s going to happen in them [laughs]. I’m really confident in what they’re doing and how they’re doing it.”
Not too much is known about story or gameplay just yet, but Bioware have recently spoken on the staggering size of Mass Effect: Andromeda which will be music to the ears of those hoping for an expansive galaxy to explore. You can also take a look at some artwork for the new lead character, who is yet to be officially revealed.
Mass Effect: Andromeda will release next year for Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC. It will not feature Commander Shepard as the main protagonist, who led his team aboard the Normandy’s various iterations through the first three Mass Effect titles.
