It's the middle of 2020 and EA still hasn't given us a remastered Mass Effect Trilogy. How have we gone almost a whole console generation without seeing Shepard and the gang on PlayStation 4? It boggles the mind.
But that'll do for our scheduled rant about remastering Mass Effect. We're here to talk about a number of currently unannounced titles that EA has lined up for this fiscal year (releasing by April 2021, in other words). This story is essentially a follow-up to EA's previously reported earnings call back in January, in which it stated that four "major" unannounced projects were set to launch through March 2021.
In the publisher's end of year report, it dedicates a page to upcoming games. The company still plans on pushing ahead with its annual sports titles, with the likes of FIFA 21, Madden 21, and NHL 21 all present and correct, but it's the small text at the bottom of the page that's of interest.
It reads: "We expect to announce additional title releases in FY21 over the coming months, including an unannounced EA SPORTS title, an additional EA HD title, four EA Partners titles and two mobile soft-launches." That's a lot of unannounced games to rattle off over the next few months, and, if we're lucky, one of them is a Mass Effect Trilogy remaster.
Naturally, this report has once again sparked hope amongst Mass Effect fans, but given EA's apparent reluctance to deliver what people want, we wouldn't set your hopes too high. The good news is that we may not have to wait very long to get some concrete answers. The recently announced EA Play 2020 is happening in June, promising "world premieres, news, and more".
