BioWare "discussed" Mass Effect PS4/Xbox One remasters

"If we can put solid plans together we'll share."

BioWare has discussed internally the idea of remastering the Mass Effect series for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

A fan asked BioWare boss Aaryn Flynn on Twitter what he thought about a next-gen, 1080p, high-resolution texture, 60 frames-per-second version for PS4 and Xbox One.

Uh huh.

Flynn's response: "We have discussed that internally. If we can put solid plans together we'll share."

It's being thought about, at least.

The Mass Effect series started life as an Xbox 360 exclusive. Eventually, PC and later PS3 versions were added - even Wii U got a look-in. Would a next-gen audience want to play it again so soon?

A fourth Mass Effect game - don't you go calling it ME4 - is in development at BioWare Montreal, the second BioWare studio. Headquarters are in Edmonton.

We've glimpsed a few images associated with the fourth game, but we're still awaiting a proper reveal, and BioWare may want to wait until Dragon Age: Inquisition is released this autumn to start talking about it.
