Hopefully its cause he just misses home or something... but I smell discord. Doesn't seem right for a game's Director to abandon his/her post a year out from release. I smell EA ****ting on his vision, and directorial refusal to compromise. 

 

Some of the comments are telling.. or at least the nerds who comment on IGN articles are often bang on the money with their guesses and opinions. 

 

Ill still play this for sure and remain cautiously optimistic but I think Mass Effect is in danger of going the way of Destiny. I hope im proven wrong though.

I'd hope at this stage the story is written and the designs are locked and they are just down to engine work and stitching all the pieces together for full beta runs.

Yeah I hope so too. I don't know the ins and outs of games development, so I have no idea what stage in the timeline they're at, and weather they have enough locked down for the directors vision to remain intact. I dunno. Maybe there is still enough time left for this not to be a crippling issue.. and maybe they get an even better director in.. who knows. All I know is change in leadership like this can make everyone nervous, lower morale and lead to a lesser product. Particularly if the original vision and director/leader is well respected.

Particularly when something similar happened to the franchise before and left a LOT of fans unhappy.

As long as Casey Hudson doesn't lock himself in a broom closet to meet a contrived deadline from EA with a rushed and illogical ending, I think we're good.
