Electronic Arts has dashed most hope for a possible remaster or reboot of the Mass Effect Trilogy on current generation systems.
Since the release of the current generation of consoles, Mass Effect fans have been eager for a Trilogy port or remaster, but it seems Electronic Arts is not as keen on the idea. IGN.com reports that EA's Patrick Söderlund was interviewed by Game Informer and he told them that a remaster is not likely. He does confirm that Electronic Arts has examined the requests and knows about the desire for a port. "I won't lie and say we haven't looked at it. 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?" Patrick said, confirming that it would not be happening. He backed this up by stating how he wants to remember games as they were originally when he goes back to play them, rather than an upscale or remaster. This news comes in light of the recent Mass Effect: Andromeda announcement at EA's E3 Conference, the game is slated for release sometime in Holiday 2016.
