EA has confirmed that it plans to release 14 new games before the end of the financial year, including an unannounced “HD remake” of an existing title. This means that 14 games will release from EA before the end of March 2021. 

Right now, EA’s planned RD remaster is rumoured to be Mass Effect, bringing the original Mass Effect Trilogy to new platforms with reworked visuals. This was first reported by Venture Beat’s Jeff Grubb.

The original Mass Effect Trilogy is a prime candidate for the HD remaster treatment, being a popular franchise with a loyal fanbase that’s currently unavailable on today’s consoles. While Xbox One offers backwards compatibility for the series, no games from the series offer Xbox One X enhancements, making the game practically identical to its original Xbox 360 release. 

As a set of Xbox 360-era games, the Mass Effect Trilogy could benefit from the strength of modern console platforms, allowing EA to deliver enhanced visuals, higher resolution textures, steadier framerates and other enhancements. The game’s original cutscenes could also be remastered at a higher resolution, making the game’s cinematic scenes look a lot better on today’s high-resolution displays. 

A new Mass Effect game has also reportedly started development at EA, making now the perfect time to reinvigorate the series by re-releasing the series’ best titles. This would help prepare fans for future Mass Effect games, and push people’s thought’s away from Andromeda. 

EA’s Mass Effect Trilogy Remaster is expected to release on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and next-generation console platforms.
