Bioware has just confirmed that the developer’s next blockbuster space opera RPG, Mass Effect 3, will only release in “the first three months of 2012,” as opposed to the previously announced release window of ‘Holiday 2011.’
From a forum post by Chris Priestly at Bioware:
“Today we have confirmed that Mass Effect 3 will be released in the first three months of 2012. The development team is laser focused on making sure Mass Effect 3 is the biggest, boldest and best game in the series, ensuring that it exceeds everyone’s expectations.” said Casey Hudson, Executive Producer Mass Effect series.
“We’ll have more details about specific dates as we get closer to release.”
You can dry your tears with the latest screenshots released for Mass Effect 3 below (they’re super absorbent!) as well as another absolutely terrific batch of shots released late yesterday. It also wouldn’t hurt to look over El33tonline’s previous coverage of Mass Effect 3 for that amazing debut trailer, and extra information.
Do you think that this delay is a good thing for Mass Effect 3 (and gamers in general) to lessen the cluster of ‘must-have’ titles at the end of the year, leaving time for you to enjoy the game? Or are you just disappointed that you won’t be able to get to the bottom of Mass Effect mysteries this year?
