BioWare has revealed that Mass Effect 3 will end the story of Commander Shepard but it won’t end the franchise.
BioWare CEO Ray Mazuka told PCGamer;
“We have ambitious plans to continue this franchise going forward. Mass Effect 3 is simultaneously a couple of different things; a thrilling and epic conclusion to the trilogy as we promised our fans we’d provide for Commander Shepard, but it’s also a brand new beginning – it’s an entry point for new fans and it’s also a brand new beginning.”
When Producer Michael Gamble was asked if this would be the end of Commander Shepard’s story he replied;
“Yes, after this, Commander Shepard’s story is complete.”
Gamble then went on to confirm that Shepard would not be in any future games set in the Mass Effect Universe.
