New Mass Effect in development, Legendary Edition confirmed for 2021
Those who missed playing the Mass Effects titles released so far should wait a bit because all three will come in the shape of a Legendary Edition release that promises to bring everything together in the same package, but with compatibility and enhancements for next-gen consoles added on top. To make it all even better, it seems that Mass Effect 4 — or whatever it will be called — is already in the making as well.
According to BioWare's VP and Studio GM Casey Hudson, "Mass Effect Legendary Edition will include single-player base content and DLC from Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2, and Mass Effect 3, plus promo weapons, armors, and packs – all remastered and optimized for 4k Ultra HD. It will be available in Spring 2021 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, with forward compatibility and targeted enhancements on Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5."
Sadly, there is not much to say about the next game in the series. All that has been revealed for now is that "a veteran team has been hard at work envisioning the next chapter of the Mass Effect universe" and that the project is still in an early stage.
On a more personal note, I loved the first game in the series, decided to purchase a special edition of the second one (in fact I pre-ordered it months ahead of the game's release) and I was disappointed with it but I finally felt that everything's back on track with Mass Effect 3. However, for me the best game in the series is the first one. If you think otherwise, feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section.
