Despite EA reportedly putting Mass Effect on hold in the wake of Andromeda‘s poor performance, BioWare has used 2019’s N7 Day to hint at a series continuation.
Taking place on November 7 each year, N7 Day (taking its name from a fictional military code) celebrates the Mass Effect series. This year, BioWare’s Twitter feed has been particularly active in teasing the future.
One post references the previous two protagonists, Shepard and Ryder, before concluding with, “[h]ere’s to the heroes of the universe and those to come.”
Meanwhile, BioWare project director Mike Gamble asked fans:
Where do you want Mass Effect to go in the future? #N7Day

The studio’s general manager also joined in the teasing, sharing previously unseen concept art and teasing “many stories yet to tell”:

None of these teases should be taken as confirmation that a new Mass Effect is in development, but BioWare has recently been more positive about the future of the series, with reports emerging earlier this year that the series is being “warmed back up.”
However, with Dragon Age 4 reportedly not set to launch until at least 2022, a new Mass Effect would likely be even further away.
