Following at interview at Gamescom with Game Informer, EA’s Patrick Söderlund has stated that Mass Effect remasters are likely, hopefully with the release of a trilogy collection for the new-gen systems and PC. Söderlund did not say outright that the remasters will defiantly release, but it is something that EA are apparently considering, nor did he provide a release date estimate. Below is what he had to say:
What’s changed is that there is proof in the market that people want it, maybe more than there was when we spoke,” said Söderlund. “There were some that did it before, but I think there is even more clear evidence that this is something that people really want.” He added “The honest answer is that we are absolutely actively looking at it. I can’t announce anything today, but you can expect us most likely to follow our fellow partners in Activision and other companies that have done this successfully.
Let’s hope this collection of remasters release before Mass Effect: Andromeda, which is set to release early 2017, because it would be great to playthrough them all before then.
