BioWare founders: Mass Effect 3 MMO “daunting”, but “interesting”

Monday, 27th February 2012 22:10 GMT By Brenna Hillier

With The Old Republic under its belt, BioWare has been giving the idea of a Mass Effect MMO serious – if speculative – thought.

“The implication of a Mass Effect MMO has so many expectations. We already bit off a big thing to chew with a Star Wars MMO, and that’s not so small,” BioWare co-founder Greg Zeschuk told the PA Report.

“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. It’s really interesting, I don’t know. It’s a tough one.”

Fellow co-founder Ray Muzyka said the Mass Effect universe is rich enough that it could support such a thing.

“When you deliver a game, and you deliver it for a player, you have to capture what they think is the possibility space,” he said, using a term he attributed to Will Wright.

“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. Mass Effect is a big possibility space.”
