Hudson Tells Guy at Starbucks: ‘Lots More’ Mass Effect to Come

A reddit user ran into Mass Effect 3 Director Casey Hudson at Starbucks the other day. He has the picture to prove it.

Apparently the guy spent some time talking to Hudson, who told him there was “LOTS more to come,” according to the post on reddit. Obviously don’t take that as gospel — but the guy did get a photo with Hudson. And his comments about the experience are interesting, at least, and sound reasonable.

We’ve already seen the first of Mass Effect 3′s story DLC, titled Leviathan, which is set for release later this month. BioWare has also been dropping multiplayer content basically every weekend since the launch of the game. Just what “LOTS more” might mean, then, is anybody’s guess.

But reddit user MikEhBlue, the guy who met Hudson, took a stab anyway:

“He was really cool, nice and chill/relaxed. Was saying how much I loved Mass Effect, and he said, well, ‘There’s LOTS more to come’.”

EDIT: I had a feeling from the look in his eye there was more to it, such as another game in the ME universe (very likely from the sounds of things).

“If it makes you feel even the slightest bit better, he did say that the stuff in the extended cut they had wanted to put in the game in the first place.”

MikEhBlue also had lots of complimentary things to say about meeting Hudson in person, who sounds very nice.

“Do we care? Are we caring about this?”

@Phil: Well that part I realized, my mistake for not being more clear. I meant to say, are we caring that Casey Hudson would tell a fan that a lot of DLC is to come? Considering his propensity to reneg on statements made in official press-releases, not sure I can believe the whole of what leaves his mouth. Though I suppose there is something to say about sincerity in this case. We shall see.

Yeah, I mean…fair enough. I mostly just posted it because it was kinda fun.

I do hope it’s actually going to be more than a couple of DLCs
like… an entire game ! ME4 !

I mean Shepard died once already, so the end of ME3 isn’t necessarily The END.

There’s always hope for a sequel, right ?

There’s always hope…

so is that supposed to be a promise or a threat?

So Hudson was hidden in a Starbucks branch? Maybe that’s why he didn’t gave any signs of life after the ME ending’s debacle…

Are we really doing this?
Are we honestly going to listen to this guy. . . .

Quick run down of his actions since March:

-He told us he left the game’s ending open to interpretation.
-When the fans complained he agreed to a facade of a questionnaire where people just asked him how great the game was.

-When he finally did listen to the fans he told us we were interpreting it wrong, while fighting against offering up any more answers.

-When he finally did provide more answers he made sure there was a “screw you” ending added in; AFTER stating numerous times that they weren’t going to change or add a new ending.

Now he is either hinting at a great deal of Mass Effect 3 DLC {which the community is seemingly already getting tired of}.

OR

A brand new Game in the Mass Effect universe: which, really seriously, how are they going to tie into the triplicate of “diverse” endings.

Lastly Machines do not have DNA, come on man!!

I’ll play the DLC, of course, but there will always be a nagging thought in the back of my head when I do: “Why even bother? I won’t change anything in the end”. Even with the EC, the ending is still a very weak way to end the series, ergo my enjoyment of the thrid game is severely diminished because of it (Just like with Halo 3).

Unless theres going to be a way to thow the star kid down a bottomless pit and make him explode, I’m not interested.

Are you sure he was only at Starbucks and not working at Starbucks?

Because I know if I messed up this badly at my job I wouldn’t be in charge in diddly.

“If it makes you feel even the slightest bit better, he did say that the stuff in the extended cut they had wanted to put in the game in the first place.”

This does make me feel better about Bioware as developers. It must have been really awful to have all that hate thrown their way over those bad endings.
