EA Hints at Mass Effect Remasters

EA Hints at Mass Effect Remasters

The Mass Effect series could be getting remasters, according to an interview with EA from Game Informer. While the publisher claimed last year that they would prefer to focus on new projects, executive vice president for EA told the publication during Gamescom this week that they may move into that space.

“What's changed is that there is proof in the market that people want it, maybe more than there was when we spoke,” said Soderlund during the interview. “There were some that did it before, but I think there is even more clear evidence that this is something that people really want.”

“The honest answer is that we are absolutely actively looking at it,” he continued. “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.”

Soderlund went on to say that if they do tackle remasters, they want to “do it really well.”

Mass Effect: Andromeda – the latest game in the franchise – is slated to release March 2017.

Wasn't this hinted ages ago? Or was that speculation?

Thought they gave a firm No to it. Now seem to be opening up the possibility.
Its probably the main series or game(s) from last gen i WANT remastered, so super happy it has at least a chance of reality.

Considering I've never played any of them, and heard (mostly) good things, I'm all for it.

No, the proof is remasters are selling. However I get the feeling people are just buying remasters because that's half of the current gen market.

Loved the mass effect trilogy
Played them all multiple times
Not sure I've got another playthrough in me . but this is great for people new to the franchise.

Remaster is ok, but what would be great is a way to upload an old save and somehow have your settings passed onto a new system. Not impossible at all IMO.

Have not yet played Mass Effect. Remaster would do nicely!
