Developers Confirm ‘Mass Effect Remastered’ Won’t Happen, Details Explained

Electronic Arts Executive Vice President, Patrick Soderlund talk about the possibility of having a potential remastering of the Mass Effect but Chief Competition Officer, Peter Moore said that the series will not be released again with an improved graphics. Although the idea is tempting on the part of the company, Moore emphasized that the company is more inclined to undertake future ideals that go back to past ventures in order to gain profit.

The developers of the Mass Effect series said that remastering the game will not be eventually made. Since the company would like to focus on future endeavors, they want their developers to focus on delivering new IP, new experiences, and more live services instead of remastering.

He also added that remasters can be a distraction to its developers especially that they are currently working on the of-delayed Andromeda.
Even despite the demand of the remastering of the original Mass Effect trilogy, EA is now mainly focusing on Mass Effect Andromeda for its March 2017 release. It will be available through PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. However, the original Mass Effect trilogy is still available for PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360.
