Amazon Studios is keen on strong IPs related to the gaming industry. The team started talks with Electronic Arts, the main goal of which is to develop the series from the BioWare universe. The Adventures of Commander Shepard could prove to be the next strong title to debut on the platform.
In the face of a lot of competition, Amazon is not afraid of challenges and eagerly develops large, popular IP. Next year we will see the series expanding the world of “Lord of the Rings” , while in November the first episodes of “The Wheel of Time” , a proposal based on the novel by Robert Jordan (James Oliver Rigney Jr.) debuted. We also know that “Fallout”, divided into episodes, is being created.
Amazon Studios, however, reach for much more and have started talks with Electronic Arts to create a production focusing on the Mass Effect universe. At one time, we could hear rumors that Netflix was to acquire the rights to the position , but the recent statements by representatives of the rival platform indicate that Amazon is not passive on the subject.
The project was referred to by Jennifer Salke, the head of Amazon Studios, who confirmed that talks about the development of the series are ongoing.
“One of the company’s newest hopefuls in the arena is Mass Effect. Amazon Studios is nearing a deal to develop a series based on the best-selling sci-fi video game franchise from Electronic Arts.”
“You will see us continuing to invest in fantasy genre of all kinds, we have a genre-focused team on the ground in Studios who work tirelessly with our creative partners on those slates, and you can look forward to more.”
Of course, all official announcements are missing so far, but there is a chance that Amazon could create a series based on BioWare stories. The high quality of the previous original projects debuting on the site may be an incentive for EA’s management to make the talks run in line with Jennifer Salke’s assumptions.
