BioWare Building a Universe Beyond Mass Effect and Dragon AgeS

In the wake of the retirement of two of its founders, BioWare assures fans that there is life beyond Doctors Muzyka and Zeschuk, including the eventual birth of a whole-new fictional universe.

Star Wars aside, the Mass Effect and Dragon Age franchises are BioWare's bread and butter, but a massive development studio under the watchful eye of EA can only survive for so long on bread and butter. In a letter reassuring fans following the announced departure of Dr. Ray Muzkya and Greg Zeschuk, BioWare Edmonton general manager Aaryn Flynn revealed that there is a third universe coming from the ... masters of the universes.

Both Dragon Age and Mass Effect started as single games but grew into vast universes. But we aren't stopping there. While Casey continues to oversee the development of our new Mass Effect project, he and his leads are putting together their vision for an all new game set in a fictional universe, built from the bottom-up with all new gaming technology.

What could it be? BioWare's got fantasy and science fiction pretty much down pat, so it all comes down to wild speculation. Here's mine: a world where life evolved from kitchen appliances.

And of course the third game in the Mass Effect trilogy wasn't the end. The letter also states that Casey Hudson and team are trying to figure out where to take the series next.

I have an idea: Through a wormhole into a universe where life evolved from kitchen appliances.
