BioWare fans found themselves in for a treat when the rumour about the remastered collection of the first three Mass Effect games started spreading but now it appears to have been delayed before an official announcement.

.Rumours about Mass Effect remasters started popping up in early 2020 before the Covid-19 mess hit the entirety of the world. Ever since then, the fans have been watching closely for any mentions of the remaster, which later came to be known as the Legendary Edition.

This is not an official name though. EA and BioWare never officially revealed or announced the project but all the info came from insiders through a collection of leaks. 

Now, these bits of information may not seem relevant in an article about the postponement of the Legendary Edition at first glance but there is a connection. It appears that EA and BioWare meant to release the game in 2020 but before the announcement could be made, the remote work took its toll on development and the project's release date had to be pushed back into 2021.

According to Jeff Grubb, who relayed the insider info, the collection should release in the earlier parts of the year. One of the main issues with the bundle was apparently the original Mass Effect. Grubb noted that both the visuals and gameplay were not up to par with Mass Effect 2 and 3 and obviously required extra work to bring it in line.

Grubb also noted that since the bundle wasn't officially announced yet, the term "delay" isn't taking up the usual shape since the public was not supposed to be aware of the project just yet. 

However, the cat is out of the bag and we are all eagerly anticipating Shepard's adventures with upgraded graphics and gameplay. How do we know? Well, the author of this article is also a fanboy that can't wait to Renegade rude people once again.
