Concluding part to the space-opera trilogy now expected Q1 2012.
EA have confirmed that BioWare’s eagerly anticipated Mass Effect 3 will see a delay that pushed it out of the originally planned ‘Holiday 2011’ release window.
The news came during EA’s financial report last night with BioWare hinting that more time to work on the game is needed to meet the high expectations of their fan base.
EA head-honcho, John Riccitiello, teased the reveal of new features at this year’s E3 and suggested that things are being changed in order to reach a bigger audience.
“One of the things that Ray Muzyuka and the team up in Edmonton have done is essentially step-by-step adjust the gameplay mechanics and some of the features that you’ll see at E3 to put this in a genre equivalent to shooter-meets-RPG and essentially address a much larger market opportunity than Mass Effect 1 and Mass Effect 2 began to approach.”
