BioWare Montreal’s Fabrice Condominas has stated that there will be no Commander Shepard in the next installment of the Mass Effect franchise, Mass Effect 4.
Whether it be called Mass Effect 4 or something completely different, BioWare have said that Mass Effect 3 was the end for Shepeard. Speaking to VG247 Condominas stated:
“There is one thing we are absolutely sure of – there will be no more Shepard, and the trilogy is over. This is really our starting point. Now the Mass Effect universe is vast, and very, very rich. So at this point in time, we don’t even know what kind of time frame we’re going to be in. All we’re doing is more gathering ideas from the teams.”
“So first, we don’t want to make ‘Shepard 2′, or Mass Effect 4 with like, ‘oh there’s no more Shepard but you’re a soldier in the universe’. So this will be a very, very different context for sure, and nothing has been decided on the rest.”
