What's next for Mass Effect & Assassin's Creed?
By January of next year, two of my favorite video game franchises (Mass Effect and Assassin's Creed) will have released the final game of their main storyline. However, as we've seen with games like Halo 3 and Gears of War 3, the last game in a series does not mean the last game in a particular game universe. Do you think that they will create a new series? Or perhaps prequels, or games that would occur alongside, but seperate from, the main series?
I think mass effect and and assassin's creed are much to profitable at this point for any developer to just stop them, so I do think that we'll see many extra titles in their respective universes. That said, I HOPE that's not true honestly. Both series are strong right now, and Mass Effect went out in style. I don't think they should do anything more with the universe, as a trilogy should be a trilogy.
What's more than likely going to happen is that this will be last Mass Effect game. Just saying because a lot of people I know don't play Mass Effect or don't like it, also it just seems that there really isn't that much hype about it.... On the other hand AC is at their prime, what's probably going to happen with AC is it will be their last game with Desman, Ezio, Altiare and who ever is the new assassian (probably spelled all those names wrong) as their characters for this trilogy.
I'm not saying AC is going to be popular forever but they still have enough hype to push out a few more games. Or what they'll do is make a few spin off games like they did with Brotherhood. This is just what I think is going to happen after talking to my one friend who is all into these games just like me. So with all his being said this is just an opinion. Hopefully both of these games and they're developers do whatever they think gamers want. Also I hope you find this a bit helpful.
Companies need to start thinking about new ip's on the next generation of consoles. They are coming faster than we know and the sooner we start perfecting development on these new machines the better.
In regards to ME and AC I believe they will still keep going in some way. Universes hold limitless ideas and concepts. Look at Assassins Creed 3, NO ONE was expecting this radical change of pretty much everything we knew and loved, but the ambition seems to be paying off right now.
As far as I know, AC is an Electronic Arts title too, so it'll probably be exploited beyond the grave. It's already made overpriced expansions and new features, adding parts to a story nobody cares or knows about. Mass Effect though is confirmed to have more sequels and prequels, because it was only the end of Sheppard's story. They will continue until people realize that they're paying too much for ill-designed nonsense.
