The existence of this trilogy remaster was not exactly kept a secret as hints of the game were everywhere including an art book was announced back in July, called the The Art of the Mass Effect Trilogy: Expanded Edition, which is set to launch in February 2021.
Then there were place holders with box art on a Portuguese retailer Gaming Reply back in September, which featured the box art for PS4, Xbox One and Switch. However, these were shortly taken down, and the logo was based on the past trilogy for Xbox 360. But either way it’s great to see these rumour confirmed.
Mass Effect Legendary Edition will be releasing in Spring 2021 on PS4, Xbox One, PS5 and Xbox Series X.
