Many have actively wondered if BioWare will pursue doing an MMO for Mass Effect after they launch the final game in the trilogy and officially release Star Wars: The Old Republic. BioWare c-founders Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk have nothing to announce, but they seem open to the idea.

“You never know,” Zeschuk replied to our Mass Effect MMO query.  “I think once The Old Republic is done, we’ll take a fresh look at the market. And we’ll have learned a lot. While making it, you learn an enormous amount. It’s one of the nice things about having these properties in our back pocket… If we want to use something we own as a source for a game, it’s easy to do. So yeah, you never know. We’ve got this giant product to launch, but once that’s done we’ll consider next steps.”

“We’re focused very much on The Old Republic, Mass Effect 3 and [our free-to-play game] Wrath of Heroes, and all the other things we’ve announced, and haven’t announced, but we also have the opportunity to look at our franchises in a way we haven’t ever before,” added Muzyka. There are lots of new platforms and lots of new business models.”
