If there's one thing we can say about Gears of War: Judgment, it's that the game was definitely made on a schedule. So when news today broke that Senior Producer on Gears of War: Judgment Chris Wynn would be moving on to become Sr. Development Director on the next Mass Effect project, we can assume one thing. That game is going to get made
Thrilled to announce that I will be joining @Bioware as the Sr. Development Director on the next Mass Effect!— Chris Wynn (@HammerOfWynn) July 2, 2013
Considering Chris' background, it's not like we can assume there will be any creative ramifications of the hire. What we can say is that with Gears of War: Judgment Epic and People Can Fly collaborated to get out a solid if not outstanding title under a rather tight schedule. If Chris can bring that philosophy, that dedication to the franchise to Mass Effect, then more power to him.
Also, isn't it just great to hear that Mass Effect is being actively worked on? I think that's great. Let's all be excited about that.
