Mass Effect 3 Is No Longer a 2011 Game of the Year Contender

Listen to this article

Easily one of the biggest games of 2011 is now coming a little later than expected. EA has announced that Mass Effect 3 will be coming to the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC in the first quarter of 2012 instead of the holiday season this year. EA promises to make Mass Effect 3 the best game out of the trilogy and the extra time to work on the ME 3 may insure that is the case.

EA CEO John Riccitiello also stated during a recent investors call that “Bioware is adjusting some of the gameplay mechanics and some of the features, which we’ll see at E3, that can put this into a genre equivalent of shooter meets RPG, and essentially address a far larger market opportunity than Mass Effect 1 and Mass Effect 2 began to approach.” Anyone care to translate John’s comments?
