The release of the highly anticipated Mass Effect Trilogy Remake was supposed to release this October, but due to COVID-19, it seems that the remake is the latest game to be affected by the virus. According to video game journalist Jeff Grubb, the trilogy’s remake was supposed to be announced in early October, and the game to come out late October.
Speaking on the GamesBeat Decides video, journalist Jeff Grubb stated the following:
Up until like this last week, I know the plan for sure was to announce it in early October, (and) release later in October. So, good news… maybe that could start to slip, it sounds like maybe that’s a possibility, nothing for sure yet
On the possibility for the Mass Effect trilogy to be just a rumor, he added:
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. I think [EA] were planning to have this Mass Effect trilogy be the other big thing [other than Star Wars Squadrons] for $60 this holiday, so that’s why I’m still pretty confident it will make it out,” Grubb added, “but with everything else falling apart, like across the board, I could see them also wanting to just delay. But that’s not for sure – that’s not a guarantee yet – like, that hasn’t even been decided yet. It just seems like it’s a possibility that’s on the table but last I heard, October – October for both.
