According to Venture Beat’s Jeff Grubb, Mass Effect HD Trilogy could be releasing on October 2020, he suggested the news by updating his Summer Game Mess, a mock-up of Geoff Keighley’s Summer Game Fest. Since the beginning of the summer, Keighley has come head to head with Keighley in teases and announcements.
Grubb has so far teased all Microsoft’s events, as well as the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1-2 Remake. EA has not confirmed its intention to remaster Mass Effect, but considering how accurate Grubb’s insiders are, is very likely that an announcement will take place in the following weeks.
