BioWare Mulling Mass Effect Trilogy Remaster for PS4, XOne
There could be a future in store for Commander Shepard after all.
Aaryn Flynn, GM of BioWare’s Edmonton and Montreal Studios, says the studio has discussed the possibility of a next-gen remaster of the original Mass Effect trilogy. Flynn spread the word via a comment on Twitter:

We’ve already seen Mass Effect bundled as a trilogy for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. Given the franchise’s popularity and the seemingly low cost to upgrade it to next-gen, it seems like something EA would green light without much thought.
If it does happen, it’s likely the last “new” Commander Shepard adventure we’ll see. BioWare has been working on a new Mass Effect game since early 2013 and has repeatedly stated it won’t feature Shepard and “doesn’t relate necessarily to any of the Shepard events at all, whatsoever.”
