Electronic Arts will release a Mass Effect trilogy remaster in its current financial year, ending March 31, 2021.
Given the popularity of the series (the original three games had sold some 14 million units as of 2014), it’s perhaps surprising that they haven’t been remastered for modern platforms before now.
However, the fourth Mass Effect game, 2017’s Andromeda, received the most divisive reviews of the series, which could have reduced excitement around the franchise.
The game is reportedly being directed by Mike Gamble, who has worked at BioWare for a decade serving as development manager on Mass Effect 2 and in producer roles on Mass Effect 3 and the most recent series entry, Andromeda.
Gamble also served as lead producer on 2019’s Anthem, a title which is in line for a major overhaul as BioWare looks to turn around the fortunes of its first new intellectual property in over a decade.
Another project in development at BioWare, Dragon Age 4, isn’t expected to be released before April 2022, according to EA.
