Mass Effect 3’s Endings Won’t Impact Andromeda

Mass Effect 3’s Endings Won’t Impact Andromeda

It appears that Mass Effect 3’s highly contentious endings won’t factor into the upcoming Mass Effect: Andromeda. This news comes from an interview Eurogamer conducted with Bioware head Aaryon Flynn at E3 last week.

"We acknowledged it in the endings of Mass Effect 3 and I think that's where we want to leave it for now,” said Aaryon. “We want this to be a new story and it would be very hard to say it's a new story but also that you need to understand how [the past trilogy] ended."

Mass Effect: Andromeda takes place in another galaxy, as mankind has expanded out to find itself a new home. The shift in location apparently allows for all possible endings to remain canon. "We've done it in such a way that allows all of those decisions you made to remain intact in the canon of the universe, but also allows a new story to begin."

There will be callbacks to the original trilogy, however. This will be in the form of certain alien races.

Mass Effect: Andromeda is slated for a 2017 release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

As someone who played through all 3, the sour taste left from the abysmal ending has infact completely dampened any interest I had in the series and will more than likely skip the new iteration completely.

Well depends how the end result of this came (reviews, reception etc) if I will play it or not.

I would asume you left when the reapers invaded, knowing that earth would be destroyed, and put into cryo sleep, *from the trailer.

That was of course, ea's fault for forcing them to rush it.

I didn't think the ending would effect it anyway. They said ages ago that Shepherd wouldn't be part of this.

I played 1 and 2 but never got around to 3. Ended up just skipping through the ending on YT anyways just to see what the fuss was all about.
