The much-rumoured Mass Effect Trilogy Remastered is apparently coming very soon – at least according to one online retailer.
Portugese website GameReplay has 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 €.
As for the release date, the retailer is claiming the games will be available sometime in October 2020.
Though the remastered version of the trilogy has been rumoured for a while now, it’s still yet to be confirmed by EA and BioWare. As always with leaks and rumours, take the listing with a pinch of salt until confirmed.
Just last month, a Reddit user posted to r/gamingleaksandrumors noting that a UK retailer reportedly has the as-of-yet-unannounced game up for pre-order in their stores.
In the post, the user explains that they had seen rumours of UK gaming store GAME taking payments for the pre-order of Mass Effect Trilogy Remastered, writing that they’d initially secured a pre-order with a date of September 29, before the store updated this to 30 October 2020.
The Redditor does note that this could simply be a placeholder date. Back in 2019, I was able to secure an Animal Crossing: New Horizons pre-order from the same UK retailer, with a release date of April 29, 2019. Obviously that turned out to be placeholder.
Though the date might still be up in the air, it seems as though the Mass Effect Trilogy Remastered almost definitely is happening – especially if stores are securing pre-orders. It’s possibly the worst-kept secret in gaming at this point, so maybe it’s about time EA and BioWare made this one official!
EA said during an investor call back in May that it has one “EA HD title” releasing this fiscal year, i.e. before the end of March 2021. Though the project wasn’t officially revealed, Games Beat journalist Jeff Grub has stated it’s Mass Effect.
Hopefully we’ll find out if there’s any truth to these claims sooner rather than later!
