There was once a Mass Effect movie in the works. In 2010 EA sold off the film rights to Legendary Pictures, with then BioWare bosses Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk set to work as executive producers alongside former Mass Effect chief Casey Hudson. But it failed to materialise. Why?
In a recent interview with Business Insider, BioWare lead writer Mac Walters explained what happened.
"It felt like we were always fighting the IP," he said. "What story are we going to tell in 90 to 120 minutes? Are we going to do it justice?"
