Oh come on, we all saw this coming.
It seems Bioware likes to release in Q1 for a few of their games. Dragon Age II (March 2011), Mass Effect 2 (January 2010), Dragon Age: Origins – Awakening (March 2010).
And now, Mass Effect 3, which has been delayed until Q1 2012.
How did people first know about it, though? On Bioware’s facebook, this message popped up:
“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.” – Casey Hudson, Executive Producer Mass Effect series”
It is a shame, but it may just be worth the wait. The more time the developer has, the better the game could be.
However, looks like everybody will be crossing Mass Effect 3 off as this year’s “Game of the Year”.
