Amazon Prime Studios “nearing a deal" for Mass Effect TV show — report

By Tom West,
Mass Effect could be getting its own live-action outing, due to Amazon reportedly "nearing a deal" to secure the rights for a TV show adaption of the space-faring RPG.

Mass Effect Legendary Edition Achievements

The news comes via a Deadline interview with Amazon Prime Studios’ head, Jennifer Salke, about the success of the recently released show, The Wheel of Time. According to Deadline, Amazon Prime Studios is “nearing a deal to develop a series based on the best-selling sci-fi video game franchise from Electronic Arts.” During the interview with Deadline, Salke notes that Amazon Prime Studios is committed to offering up fantasy-themed series just like The Wheel of Time, and its upcoming Lord of the Rings show: “You will see us continuing to invest in fantasy genre of all kinds,” says Salke. “We have a genre-focused team on the ground in Studios who work tirelessly with our creative partners on those slates, and you can look forward to more.”

That's all we have to go on for now, and there has been no official confirmation, but seeing as Mass Effect Legendary Edition was so positively received when it launched back in May, now might be the perfect time to begin investing in a live-action adaption.
