The news stems from the Twitter feed of Mass Effect 3 executive producer Casey Hudson, who wrote, "After an awesome effort by our team, I'm proud to announce Mass Effect is officially gold."

Hudson also teased the game's fans, saying, "Many surprises await you--this week and beyond."

Gamers won't need to wait until March to play Mass Effect 3, however. A demo for the title touches down tomorrow for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.

Developed by BioWare, Mass Effect 3 is the final entry in the Mass Effect 3 trilogy, but not necessarily the last title set in the game's universe. For more on Mass Effect 3, check out GameSpot's latest hands-on preview.
