Will BioWare's Mass Effect franchise eventually receive a movie or television adaptation? [...]
According to a recent interview with Mass Effect Legendary Edition project director Mac Walters, it is basically inevitable that such a thing will happen. Specifically, Walters is quoted as telling Business Insider that it is "not a matter of if, but when" an adaptation ends up happening.
"It's such an expansive world, and so many people I know in the TV and film industry have reached out to ask me when we're going to do it and saying we've got to do it," Walters told the outlet. He went on to compare side missions and the general structure of video games like Mass Effect as better fitting a television show rather than a movie. "If you're going to tell a story that's as fleshed out as Mass Effect," he said, "TV is the way to do it. There's a natural way it fits well with episodic content."
