Mmmmmm, maybe a story running concurrently to the original one? Where you play as someone low key. I'd love to play a zoomed in story about a mercenary or pirate whilst everything else is going on around them.Simple Bluff said:I wish I had a link for this, but I'm nearly certain Bioware said ME4 is not a prequel. So I guess the only way to go forward is to choose a canon ending.AnarchistFish said:I'm thinking it might be a prequel. Would be the most sensible way to avoid this.tippy2k2 said:There is one GIANT issue standing in the way to a direct sequel here...
For everyone complaining that all three endings were "the same", they would all have VERY different results if you continued the story (not to mention all the side stuff that could be different).
You talk about Quarians as an example for a species hit hard by the destruction of the Citadels. Well...they were hit very hard in my game for they blew up. I cured the Genophage, which is going to have a very different impact than someone who decided not to do it. These are just two examples from my own play through.
For the main course, you have HUGE differences between the three cupcake endings. Either:
A. The Reapers were destroyed and are no longer a threat. However, you just killed millions of sentient robot life as well
B. The Reapers are in your control and they're still doing whatever it is that mind-controlled Reapers do.
C. Everyone has turned into androids after fusing all life and robots into one super race
Hell, you'd need an entirely different game based on whatever choice you made. One year or one hundred thousand years later, the story would have to change based on which major end choice you made.
So in conclusion, they're likely going to continue stories in the Mass Effect universe. However, I would be incredibly shocked if they ever made a direct sequel.
