BioWare has confirmed that not every species players encountered in the original Mass Effect trilogy will be featured in Mass Effect Andromeda.
Speaking with Game Informer, creative director Mac Walters explained that while not every alien race from the Milky Way Galaxy that was established in the first three games will be making it to Andromeda, the studio isn’t ruling out the possibility of them appearing in future installments.
“We’ve designed the IP in such a way that they can all show up,” Walters said. “For hopefully obvious reasons, they’re not all going to show up in the first game.”
