Mass Effect Legendary Edition Sales

EA has just enjoyed a very successful quarter according to the company's latest earnings report — and the release of Mass Effect Legendary Edition played a big part in that. The remastered collection launched back in May, and EA says that it's sold "well above" expectations up until this point.

"The launch of Mass Effect Legendary Edition, the remaster of the first three Mass Effect games, reignited the passion of fans around the world, driving sales performance well above our expectations," CEO Andrew Wilson stated during the earnings call.

The report doesn't provide any clear numbers, but EA certainly sounds happy with Legendary Edition's performance. The publisher had always seemed unsure about remastering the original Mass Effect trilogy, but fans had been asking for such a collection since the start of the PlayStation 4 generation. All told, we're not really surprised that it ended up selling so well. Of course, it also helps that Legendary Edition presents a fantastic overall remaster of three great games.
