While this generation has seen an ample offering of brand new IP, it’s fair to say that there’s still demand for remasters of older, classic games. Case in point: Sony’s PS4 alone currently boasts 57 high-definition remasters in its back catalogue. I know, that’s a lot of remasters, right?
However, for every Bioshock: The Collection or Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, there’s often unnecessary modernised ports for games like Constructor HD. I mean, does the world really need a remaster of that? But I digress.
Thankfully, one video game remaster that many fans have been clamouring for may be coming to fruition sooner than expected. Yes, Electronic Arts’ much rumoured Mass Effect Trilogy Remastered is reportedly in the works and may be coming out sooner than you think thanks to a new report from gaming outlet, Gamereactor.
Specifically, the report claims that the much-requested remastered collection is set for a release this fall in place of EA’s annual blockbuster releases, such as a new Battlefield or Star Wars game. Apparently, neither of these franchises are ready to ship a game this fall, so as a replacement, Mass Effect Trilogy Remastered will aim to plug the hole in the company’s late-2020 schedule. Unfortunately, beyond those scarce details, there’s not much else to go on at the moment.
Of course, there are no concrete price-point details at the moment, but it’s safe to assume that this remaster will be available for PS4, Xbox One and PC. It’s also very likely that EA’s popular sci-fi trilogy could be a cross-generational title that may also be playable on the PS5 and Xbox Series X. However, due to the unofficial nature of this intel, we’d suggest to take this report with a grain of salt until something more official is confirmed.
