During EA’s Q4 2020 earnings call, CEO Andrew Wilson revealed that the publisher would be releasing fourteen new games in the 2021 fiscal year (April 1, 2020 until March 31, 2021). VentureBeat’s Jeff Grubb has published the purported list of titles, which includes something that many BioWare fans have been pleading for: an HD remaster of the Mass Effect Trilogy.

There aren’t any details on how the games are being revamped yet, but we can probably expect proper 4K support via higher-quality textures. All three Mass Effect titles still sound and play great, so it’s hard to imagine what else will be changed – although if EA and BioWare really want to do fans a solid, they may considering amending that horribly received Mass Effect 3 ending, which many still haven’t lived down.

All of the DLC should also be included, which is definitely a good thing based on how integral some of them were to the overarching story. That would include Mass Effect 3’s Leviathan, which provided a bit of insight on the species that the Reapers originally harvested.

Here is the list of EA titles that are known thus far:

  • Burnout Paradise Remastered (Nintendo Switch)
  • Command & Conquer Remastered (PC)
  • Medal of Honor VR
  • FIFA 21
  • Madden NFL 21
  • NHL 21
  • Unannounced sports game
  • Mass Effect Trilogy HD Remaster
  • EA Partner game
  • EA Partner game
  • EA Partner game
  • EA Partner game
  • EA Mobile game
  • EA Mobile game

The HD remasters of Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2, and Mass Effect 3 will presumably be released on the PC, Xbox Series X, and PlayStation 5. Hopefully, EA isn’t trying to figure out how to add loot boxes to the Normandy.
