Coming out of GamesCom, Game Informer has spoken to Patrick Soderlund, the executive vice president for EA on EA’s stance against remastered games and their opinion change.
What’s changed is that there is proof in the market that people want it, maybe more than there was when we spoke. There were some that did it before, but I think there is even more clear evidence that this is something that people really want. The honest answer is that we are absolutely actively looking at it. I can’t announce anything today, but you can expect us most likely to follow our fellow partners in Activision and other companies that have done this successfully.
This comes as Mass Effect fans eagerly await Mass Effect Andromeda’s release in 2017 but had questions about their past game save files. While PC players have a easy time with game longevity and file transfer, it has been a concern of Xbox One and PS4 players. Save file transfers have become a staple of the Mass Effect series. Further comments from Soderlund notes the fan demand for a Mass Effect’s first few games remastered and release.
But is this about-face too much of a flip flop or a welcomed idea change ahead of a massive release?
