Rumor: Japan Wonders if the Mass Effect Anime Was Canned

Brian Ashcraft:

Earlier this summer, a trailer for Mass Effect: Paragon Lost, an animated Mass Effect 3 prequel, was released. As previously posted, Paragon Lost is a collaboration between BioWare and Production I.G., the famed Japanese anime house behind Ghost in the Shell and the animated scenes in Kill Bill.

*Is* a collaboration? Speculation out of Japan makes it seem that "was" would be more appropriate. But let's not jump to conclusions just yet!

Yesterday, reports surfaced that IG Port, Production I.G's parent company, cancelled a work contract, because its client defaulted on payment—you know, didn't pay.

The story is too old to be commented.

Hopefully. I'm tired of Mass Effect.

The games are in decline, so an anime certainly wouldn't be any good. It probably wouldn't even be good under ideal property circumstances, either.
