Rumour: Amazon may soon be making a Mass Effect TV series

While I’m personally not a big Mass Effect person, here at SA Gamer, I’m definitely in the minority. It’s one of the most beloved game series amongst many members of our team. To give you some idea of just how much several of them like the series – here’s Charlie’s 9/10 review of the Legendary Edition, and if you want a more detailed breakdown of each game in the trilogy, Abigail wrote some great pieces of her revisits of Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3. It’s a sprawling sci-fi universe and given how many video game franchises are being made into Streaming TV series/movies these days it was just a matter of time before Mass Effect got the treatment…

According to Eurogamer, in an interview with Deadline Amazon Studios head Jennifer Salke, it was mentioned that “Amazon Studios is nearing a deal to develop a series based on the best-selling sci-fi video game franchise”. As stated in the Eurogamer article, a movie had been touted in the past, however, given the rather deep narrative of the Mass Effect universe it probably makes sense that this particular video game goes the longer-form series route. Now, all we have to do is wait…
