Show of hands: who's sick of hearing about the supposed Mass Effect Trilogy Remaster? Or perhaps a better question: who's sick of listening to the same old rumours over and over again? This latest update on the long, long rumoured remaster comes directly from journalist-in-the-know Jeff Grubb, who has said numerous times that the Remaster is in development.
Speaking on the GamesBeat podcast, Grubb states that EA was (and maybe still is) targeting an October 2020 release date for the Trilogy Remaster. Last he heard, it was meant to be revealed in early October, and it was meant to ship in late October. However, this date could "slip" due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Grubb also reiterates: "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."
To be fair to Grubb, we have no reason not to believe him. It's just that it feels like we've been waiting an eternity for EA to announce this bloody thing, or at least acknowledge its existence. But if a reveal was always scheduled for October, we suppose that explains the wait.
