Mass Effect fans should be happy to know that Commander Shepard may not be dead after all. Joy!

Casey Hudson, Mass Effect 2’s executive producer, hinted around in the latest BioWare developer blog that if Shepard is dead, it will mess things up a bit.

“I’ve heard some rumors that Commander Shepard is dead. Better not be,” he wrote.”We had a lot of big plans made, so if someone’s gone and killed Shepard then things are going to take an unexpected turn.”

Either he’s dead and we are being teased, or he is very much alive and just hiding somewhere.

Hopefully E3 will shed more light on things.

Thanks, Joystiq.

    On this day 140 years into the future Commander Shepard, the protagonist and inarguable hero of the Mass Effect trilogy, will be born. The BioWare Blog offers both Paragon and Renegade cupcakes and cocktails recipes in celebration. Happy birthday, Shep; we miss you.

  • Mass Effect movie will be all about (male) Shepard

    In completely unsurprising news, Legendary Pictures has confirmed that yes, the Mass Effect movie will be all about Commander Shepard. It’s also (unfortunately) confirmed that the character in the starring role will be John, and not our beloved FemShep. That aside, it’s still good to have some news about the film adaptation, right?
