Don't Expect PS4/Xbox One Mass Effect Trilogy Remaster

BioWare hasn't ruled it out, but there are no plans right now to bring the first three games to Xbox One and PlayStation 4.


Back in November 2014, a BioWare survey suggested that the developer was considering developing a remastered version of the Mass Effect Trilogy for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Now, however, Electronic Arts has spoken out to tell fans they should not hold their breath for such a collection.

"I won't lie and say we haven't looked at it," EA executive Patrick Söderlund told Game Informer. "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?"

The Mass Effect Trilogy launched in 2012 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. As its name suggests, the game includes Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2, and Mass Effect 3.

Earlier this week at E3, EA announced the next entry in the Mass Effect series, which is called Mass Effect: Andromeda. For more, check out our previous coverage and a video below.
