BioWare are considering upgraded versions of the first three Mass Effect games, with improved textures, and 1080p and 60fps visuals.
As far as anyone knew BioWare is busy working on Mass Effect 4, with the first hints about the new game having been made last year.
But after answering a question on Twitter it seems that they may also be considering bringing the original three games to the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
‘We have discussed that internally. If we can put solid plans together we’ll share. Great to hear you’re keen’, said BioWare Edmonton and Montreal general manager Aaryn Flynn.
There is of course already a Mass Effect Trilogy for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC, which was released in late 2012.
Although not improved in any way from the original versions it did go to the effort to create a PlayStation 3 version of the first game just for the compilation (although it was also made available separately).
Even so, bringing all three games to the new consoles will still require quite a bit of work – especially if they’re improved in the way the Twitter fan wants.
If it did happen though it would encourage BioWare to import saved data into the new game, although it’s not clear how relevant that would be as one of the few things we know about Mass Effect 4 is that it won’t star Commander Shepard.
