News culture Mass Effect: Legendary Edition Director Talks About TV Series
Last October, Eurogamer announced that a Mass Effect film project was planned for 2010 before it was abandoned. Today we hear about a recent interview with Mac Walters, director of the Mass Effect Legendary Edition project, in which he explains that a different format would be more suitable.
The project of a Mass Effect film was thus a reality. a good ten years ago in partnership with Legendary. A lack of support and changes at the top of the production company unfortunately put an end to the idea, which has since disappeared in the balance. Several movie game adaptations have since been released, however Video games seem to be thriving on television now
It’s such a big world and so many people I know in the television and film industries have reached out to me and asked when we should do it and told me we have to do it. If you want to tell a story as polished as Mass Effect, television is the way to go. (Mass Effect) fits into the episodic format, of course.
When we develop a Mass Effect game we have a backbone or an overall story that we want to tell, but each level or mission is itself a TV episode. It is not written in advance. It is written how we get there. So it gets added to the main story and sometimes the main story is adjusted because we did something really cool in that ‘episode’.
The successes of The Witcher, de Castlevania, the imminent arrival of the series The Last of Us and Resident Evil, and in general, the industry’s intention to adjust their licenses Headlights are certainly not alien to this statement. By the way, BioWare is currently working on one new Mass Effect, and it wouldn’t not entirely crazy to think that a series could add to the media weight of the next opus. No TV series project has been launched for the time being, and Mac Walters just evokes the idea. So be patient.
