BioWare on MMO Mass Effect Possibilities

An interview on The PA Report continues their mission to fix games journalism by talking with Doctors Greg Zeschuk and Ray Muzyka about what's going on at BioWare. Topics include the launch of Star Wars: The Old Republic and the upcoming third installment in the Mass Effect series of action/RPGs. Along the way, Dr. Zeschuk discusses the "big possibility space" the Mass Effect IP represents when contemplating the possibility of an MMOG based on the series:

It became clear they had given the idea at least some thought. “It’s daunting, but the neat thing is it would lend itself to a different type of game play. It’s fun to think about. I imagine people think it would be just like Mass Effect as it is… but there’s lots of people there. It’s really interesting, I don’t know. It’s a tough one.”

“The possibility space, that’s a term that I heard Will Wright say about ten years ago, and it really struck me,” Muzyka continued, pointing out that most Bioware properties could work as MMOs. “When you deliver a game, and you deliver it for a player, you have to capture what they think is the possibility space. You need to let them do everything they think they should do, and you can’t block them from doing anything they think they should be able to do. You have to nail all the features and content that should be in that possibility space.“ He paused for a moment.

“Mass Effect is a big possibility space.”

Unless you want your character to jump.
