Stop holding out hope because it ain’t happening. EA’s Patrick Söderlund told Game Informer that the publisher has no plans for remastering the Mass Effect trilogy, one of the best game series of all time. The company is moving forward investing in new IPs.
Söderlund had this to say to Game Informer: “I won’t lie and say we haven’t looked at it. But for us, it’s about weighing where we spend our resources. Is it better for them to be working on a completely new IP, which you know BioWare is, or should they be remastering a Mass Effect?
“I don’t know about you, but sometimes when I go back and play a game, you want the memory of what they were at that point in time when you played them,” Söderlund continued. “If I go back and play the old games, I think, ‘Really?!’ Was this what it was? Because in my mind it was amazing.”
So don’t expect Bioware to create a remastered version of the trilogy for PlayStation 4, PC, or Xbox One. Instead, they’ll be focusing on Mass Effect: Andromeda, which you can read about by clicking here.
