There is good news for fans of the Mass Effect series. Drew Karpyshyn, the lead writer for the first two Mass Effect games is set to make a return to Bioware.
Karpyshyn left Bioware in 2012 to work on his own trilogy of books called Chaos Born. Now that the final novel, called Chaos Unleashed, is finished he has decided to return to the BioWare fold. He said that he will not currently be working on any new projects but came back to work on Star Wars The Old Republic.
In a blog post Karpyshyn said “Speaking of full circle, here’s the second piece of big news: as of this past week, I am back working at BioWare again! For those who don’t know, I spent over a decade with BioWare working on many award winning and fan-beloved games like Mass Effect 1&2, Knights of the Old Republic and the Star Wars: The Old Republic Online MMO. A few years ago I left BioWare to focus on my Chaos Born novels, but now that the trilogy is finished, I’ve decided to come back into the fold. But for those of you who love my novels, don’t worry – I’ll still be writing more of those, too!”
So no actual mention of Mass Effect but fans can hope and it must be a possibility that Karpyshyn will return to the series at some point in the future.
