Mass Effect’s unconfirmed Legendary Edition has reportedly been delayed, pushing it from its alleged October release all the way into next year.
If you’re a little lost with this supposed story, here’s the TL;DR. Rumours of a Mass Effect Trilogy remaster have been making the rounds for a long time now, with one retailer even leaking what was thought to be the release date for the game.
Industry insider and VentureBeat reported Jeff Grubb also corroborated the rumours, adding that he believes the trilogy will be entitled “Mass Effect: Legendary Edition.”
(Note that neither EA or BioWare have confirmed the remaster’s existence at this point, let alone the title.)
Now that we’re all caught up, let’s dive into the new claim that the remaster has been delayed all the way out of 2020.
A new report from VentureBeat by Grubb claims that BioWare isn’t only having issues with the global pandemic, but also with the remaster of the first game in the collection.
According to the report, the original Mass Effect “does not live up to the quality of the rest of the package,” delaying its release into 2021.
With no named sources on this one, it’s best to take it with a pinch of salt until confirmed, however, we’ve seen enough rumours of this remastered trilogy to potentially make it one of the worst-kept secrets in gaming.
Earlier this summer, Portugese website GameReplay listed the allegedly upcoming game for Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 for 59,99 €, with the Nintendo Switch version coming in cheaper at 49,99 €.
Grubb has since dismissed the idea that the game is coming to Switch. Really, it would be great if EA could just announce some cold, hard facts about this supposed game so we can stop dealing in rumours and leaks…
