Due to recent announcements during EA’s “Q4 and Full Year FY20 Financial Results” report, it would seem that a Mass Effect Trilogy Remaster might be on the way. It’s expected to release in 2020, or prior to March/April 2021. It sounds like a large window, but that accompanies any possible delays that might happen towards the targeted window.
That large scale time period is likely also to be enforced by the issues surrounding development due to COVID-19. While literally not details are present on this rumor, it is expected that the core three games would be placed together. It’s unknown if they would be straight up tied together, or left as separate entries within the pack.
As a personal note it would be expected based on current standards to be enhanced with 900-1080p on base consoles at 60fps, or 4k 60fps on premium consoles. It might also be present on Xbox Series X and Playstation 5 alongside current generation consoles or Xbox One and Playstation 4. It would likely have HDR support, and various textural upgrades.
It would also likely feature support for all released DLC and maybe some level of past import based on previous saves though that part seems unlikely. We’ll be sure to have more details as they’re announced for this. It’s always an epic time to jump into Bioware’s stunning RPG experience that followed the legendary Commander Shepard that you create.
This might also drum up interest in starting a new series of games, moving past the failed Mass Effect Andromeda. Read our ten years later on the franchise write-up, or the general hub for additional coverage of the series at this point or going forward.
