Mass Effect 5: Was Shepard’s Return Mistakenly Revealed?

Commander Shepard is iconic and he’s the force behind Mass Effect that drives hope for organic life and fear into the reapers. *SPOILERS FOR MASS EFFECT 3*. In all of the endings, Shepard perishes except for one where Shepard is shown to survive. And even then it is complicated and not clear if he does, more of a hint.

With the new Mass Effect on the way, we were already informed that old characters are coming back like Liara. Many people wouldn’t have even assumed we would play as Shepard again due to 3’s dramatic endings. However, it seems BioWare may have leaked their own secrets.

This was the product that may have leaked Shepard’s’ return

The product description for the new Mass Effect said “The show goes on. Shepard’s final quest may have ended the threat of the Reapers but at great cost including Earth itself. While Shepard and the survivors are left to pick up the pieces, fans are left wondering what’s next”. That in itself is confirmation that Shepard returns.

The original product description has since been edited and has taken out any mention of Commander Shepard. Yet, the plot thickens as BioWare project manager Michael Gamble responded to the ordeal saying “The original [description] was written by the people who run the store and aren’t familiar with the game”. Obviously, if it wasn’t meant to be revealed BioWare has to deny it and say it was a mistake. I think that this could be real as it seems odd for someone unfamiliar with the game to even mention Shepard.

Many fans will be hoping this is real. Although, Gamble may be telling the truth and it was just a simple mistake by someone who is unaware of what is in the new Mass Effect. As a huge fan of the Mass Effect series I really hope this is true.
