While it wasn’t why people bought the game, there has always been a bit of fondness for the Mass Effect 3 multiplayer mode. Although it isn’t present in the recently released Mass Effect Legendary Edition, there is a possibility it can be added in the future.
In an interview with CNET’s Sean Keane, Mass Effect Legendary Edition project director Mac Walters said there is a chance it could come back if the circumstances are right. It mostly depends on how the new remastered games are received and if they have the resources to create a quality mode both fans and the developers want to play.
“I would never say no to that,” said Walters. “We want to see what kind of reception the Legendary Edition gets and what the demand for the multiplayer is, and then we’ll ask ourselves if we have the resources and time to bring it up to the quality level we and fans want.”
