Is the Mass Effect Trilogy remaster just around the corner? Well, according to an interview on GamesBeat’s Decides podcast, that may be the case.

The relevant quote from the podcast (via Forbes) indicates that the remaster could actually be here in October. The transcribed full quote reads,

“Up until, like, this last week, I know the plan for sure was to announce it in early October, release in later in October. So good news. Maybe bad news – it’s 2020 – maybe that could start to slip, it sounds like maybe that’s a possibility, nothing for sure yet.

I know it’s real. I’ve seen more than enough evidence to know it’s real, but it’s still 2020 and they haven’t announced it yet.”

It continues, citing EA’s holiday plans for their releases this year,

“I think [EA] were planning to have this Mass Effect trilogy be the other big thing [other than Star Wars Squadrons] for $60 this holiday, so that’s why I’m still pretty confident it will make it out. But with everything else falling apart, like across the board, I could see them also wanting to just delay. But that’s not for sure – that’s not a guarantee yet – like, that hasn’t even been decided yet. It just seems like it’s a possibility that’s on the table but last I heard, October – October for both.”

So there we have it. Note, there wasn’t any indication on whether or not this remaster would arrive on next gen consoles, Xbox Series X and PS5, during the launch period, or if at all. We’ll just have to sit tight until we see more concrete information.
