Rumored Mass Effect Trilogy Remaster Release Set For October, Could Be Delayed
One of the biggest rumors that has been swirling around the Internet over recent years is none other than the remastered Mass Effect trilogy. Fans have been itching for an upgraded version of the beloved series, and if recent rumors are to be believed, we might not have to wait too much longer.
During a recent podcast (via VGC), GamesBeat’s Jeff Grubb claimed that an announcement for the Mass Effect trilogy remaster was “for sure” planned for the beginning of October, with a launch coming later in the month. However, they go on to note that this might no longer be the case. “Maybe bad news – it’s 2020 – maybe that could start to slip, it sounds like maybe that’s a possibility, nothing for sure yet,” Grubb said.
Grubb then goes on to say that they’ve seen “more than enough evidence” to know that the Mass Effect trilogy remaster is real, “but it’s still 2020 and they haven’t announced it yet.” A lot of things have been delayed this year due to obvious reasons, so if the remastered trilogy were to follow suit, it would be no surprise. Then again, we still don’t know for a fact that it is indeed real.
“I think [EA] were planning to have this Mass Effect trilogy be the other big thing [other than Star Wars Squadrons] for $60 this holiday, so that’s why I’m still pretty confident it will make it out, but with everything else falling apart, like across the board, I could see them also wanting to just delay,” Grubb continued. “But that’s not for sure – that’s not a guarantee yet – like, that hasn’t even been decided yet. It just seems like it’s a possibility that’s on the table but last I heard, October – October for both.”
There’s no denying that fans want a Mass Effect trilogy remaster, but until EA or BioWare speak up, we’ll just have to keep on waiting to know if it is truly happening.
