Mass Effect N7 day

Ever since Mass Effect: Andromeda failed to generate critical acclaim and sales, it seemed as though EA had placed the franchise on hold.

Today a new patch has been released for Xbox One X owners of Mass Effect: Andromeda that includes some enhancements for the game, though no real information is given other than its existence.

On its release in March 2017, Mass Effect Andromeda faced a storm of criticism due to its bugginess and the shoddiness of its facial motion-capture.

BioWare's Casey Hudson teased the future for the "Mass Effect" universe in a promotional video for 2018's N7 Day on Wednesday.

"It means coming into the studio everyday, dreaming about what the next great "Mass Effect" game will be", Hudson said.

That's why for this annual N7 Day holiday (November 7. get it?), we wanted to explore a few ways BioWare can make another video game in the same universe. Andromeda has finally been upgraded with support for Xbox One X.

It sure does seem like Hudson's lingering look at the camera is a meaningful wink to fans, letting them know that the Mass Effect series hasn't been killed off in a boardroom somewhere.

Following the dent in its reputation caused by Mass Effect Andromeda, BioWare hasn't confirmed whether further iterations of the franchise are in the pipeline. In the meantime, fans might just have to watch BioWare communications for secret messages.
