While it was not officially taped into until this past November, the alleged Mass Effect Remastered Trilogy continued to linger online through word-of-mouth claims and other whispers through the grapevine. However, while a simple teaser trailer was presented for what was then labeled ‘Mass Effect: Legendary Edition’ on N7 Day, there is only a projection for when the game will arrive.
At the time of the reveal, it was disclosed the game is scheduled to arrive sometime in spring 2021. That gives the title a broad estimate as to when fans can relive the impactful three installments on the latest console hardware. But while it is still unclear as to when the game officially drops, it seems word broke out sooner than expected.
In a new announcement from Indonesian video game retailer GSSHOP, the title is expected to release sooner than we expected. In the tweet, the firm tells that Mass Effect: Legendary Edition is scheduled to arrive on March 12 later this year.
In the past, it was told that the Mass Effect trilogy scheduled to release in fall of 2020 was swiftly pushed to a new, undetermined date in the following year. So perhaps there is room to speculate that the team at BioWare used the additional time efficiently before the calendar year officially ticks into the spring equinox.
Elsewhere in regards to internal BioWare, studio General Manager Casey Hudson who was overlooking the upcoming Mass Effect game departed from the team. Executive Producer Mark Darrah also announced his retirement from BioWare the same day. You can read the full report by heading here.
