Say it isn’t so! But we weren’t holding our breath were we? Bioware says Mass Effect 3 will be delayed until the first few months of 2012. According to executive producer Casey Hudson, “The development team is laser focused on making sure Mass Effect 3 is the biggest, boldest and best game in the series…”
The announcement is a disappointment, but we’re glad the guys at Bioware have the gamer’s best interest in mind — that is — making the best game possible and as Hudson puts it, “ensuring that it exceeds everyone’s expectations.”
It’s worth noting that Mass Effect 2 was released for PS3 in January of this year, which would put Mass Effect 3 at just about a year after. What’s also worth noting is Bioware says ME3 will be available for all three platforms: Xbox 360, Wii, and PlayStation 3. Although, they didn’t indicate whether they would be released simultaneously.
At the same time, Bioware teases us with some amazing new screenshots Mass Effect 3. Check out a few below:
