Exclusive Mass Effect Trilogy Confirmed for Xbox 360

 [Update] It appears that the source site was either confused, or downright lying, but either way this rumour has been squashed by Bioware themselves. So far nothing has been confirmed about exclusivity or not but it does appear that the trilogy part is true.

Mass Effect a 360 exclusive for ever

Bioware’s head honcho, Ray Muzyka, has been talking to the ozzie mag Australian 360 about the future of the Mass Effect series and it’s all good news for our 360 fans.

Ray has confirmed that Mass Effect will be a trilogy and it will be a console exclusive for the Xbox 360.

What’s really important about this announcement is that it shows us the legs that the 360 still has with the next title planned to be out in 2009 and then the third most probably in 2011. So if you were worried that the 360 would be dropped before then worry no more. EA are big enough to be trusted in this regard.

Also if you were one of the few hoping for the PS3 to get a port then I think it’s time to stop hoping, Mass Effect is a solid 360 exclusive.

    Whether that means PC and 360, or PC, PS3 and 360 is anyone’s guess though.

    I would rather play it on the Xbox360 than maintain an expensive PC imo.

    Mhhh…

    I wonder if they decided to make it a trilogy because Too Human is going to be one, or whether it was the idea from the start.

    Personally I would release Mass Effect 3, and Gears of War 3 as launch titles on the next Xbox console…

    Uhm…the first one was ported to the Pc, so the trilogy aint an “exclusive”?
    But ja, if they don’t port the other 2 to the pc that’s going to be pretty k*k form imo. I totally enjoyed the first one and would love to play the others. And that goes double for Gears. 🙁

    Well, be that as it may, the Pc version was stellar.

    Like God of War 3?

    I can see it happening with Gears, as they’re not trying to release a “trilogy”, But for ME and TH it makes sense to keep it on the same device. There’s nothing stopping them from creating another story arc in the same universe on a new platform.

    appranantly it’s been the idea from the start since they spoke about being able to carry over your current character and his abilities over to the next version.

    That interview was made up, confirmed by Bioware.

    I am fairly confident we will not see a Too Human 2.
