The Wheel of Time series, which debuted on November 19, has apparently been a success for Amazon Prime. Therefore, time limit Reportedly, Amazon Studios is doubling down on adaptations — among them, a potential Mass Effect TV show. “Amazon Studios is close to a deal from Electronic Arts to develop a series based on the best-selling sci-fi video game franchise”, as Deadline says.

Amazon Studios head Jennifer Salke said that the Lord of the Rings prequel series starting next September on Amazon Prime (which is confusingly referred to The Silmarillion, the Lord of the Rings prequel that already exists) is not allowed. Well, part of that commitment is adaptation. “We know that our global audience is hungry for advanced imagery and shows based on beloved IP”, she said.

According to Salke, “You’ll see that we continue to invest in all kinds of fantasy genres, we have a genre-focused team on the ground at studios that work tirelessly with our creative partners on those slates, and You can expect more.” ,


Mass Effect would probably be more suitable for an ongoing series than a film adaptation, as was planned and then abandoned in 2010 after Legendary Pictures withdrew the rights. Explaining why the film was never made, BioWare’s Mac Walters said, “If you’re going to tell a story that’s like ‘Mass Effect,’ TV is the way to do it. Do well with episodic material.” There’s a natural way to get fit.”

The game has a fair bit of Star Trek and Babylon 5 in his DNA, and Walters said that writing Mass Effect was like writing TV. “When we make a ‘Mass Effect’ game, we have a backbone, or an overall story, that we want to tell, but each level or mission is like its own TV episode,” he said. “It’s not written ahead of time. It’s written at the moment we get to it. So it’s added to the main story and sometimes the main story gets adjusted because we really did in that ‘episode’ did something good.” ,
