November 7 marks N7 Day in celebration of the Mass Effect series. For those who don't know, N7 is an Alliance military code within the Mass Effect universe that marks a unit of the special forces.
Although the series has been on hiatus for a couple of years, Mass Effect remains on the forefront of BioWare fans' minds following the controversial Mass Effect: Andromeda. Apparently, the series is on the minds of BioWare as well, as project director Casey Hudson tweeted some Mass Effect concept art hinting at unused ideas and locales.
Hudson tweeted the following:
"We have so many ideas for things we want to do in #MassEffect," starts Hudson. He adds that there is "so much concept art that hasn't yet been brought to life, and so many stories yet to tell. #N7Day"
It makes sense that, if anyone were to celebrate N7 Day, it would be Hudson. After all, he led the development of the Mass Effect series. As such, it would make sense for him to pay tribute to the series in this manner.
As a general rule, it's best not to get hopes up too much. However, this does pave a path for questions regarding the future of the Mass Effect series. Given EA doesn't kill BioWare, a new installment could come our way in the future, perhaps involving the swampy area seen above or the metropolitan city. Whatever the path forward may be, even if it has to do with that rumored Mass Effect trilogy remaster, hopefully, it will exceed the quality of Mass Effect: Andromeda.
As of lately, however, the Dragon Age series has been in the spotlight. A tweet from BioWare itself suggests that Dragon Age 4 might be revealed soon, especially in light of the upcoming Dragon 4ge Day on December 4th.
Anthem, however, has also been an area of focus for BioWare this year. Anthem may have been one of 2019's highest-selling games in the year's first several months. However, the game has ultimately been plagued by development issues, bugs, and BioWare employee exits. At this point, it's doubtful the game can fully recover. However, more to the point, hopefully, BioWare has something grand to reveal up its sleeves in the near future.
