EA actively looking at HD Remasters

EA has told Game Informer that it is may very well take the same route as Activision and other publishers by bringing remastered titles to PS4, Xbox One and PC.

Speaking an interview with the site, executive VP Patrick Soderlund told Game Informer, "What's changed is that there is proof in the market that people want it, maybe more than there was when we spoke [at E3 2015].

"There were some that did it before, but I think there is even more clear evidence that this is something that people really want."

When asked specifically about a remastered Mass Effect trilogy, he replied, "The honest answer is that we are absolutely actively looking at it. I can't announce anything today, but you can expect us most likely to follow our fellow partners in Activision and other companies that have done this successfully.

"We have to be careful in choosing the right brands for the right reasons at the right time. A remaster is something that you can just do or do it really well. I want to make sure that if we were to do it, we would do it really well and that people feel that it's the same game but it feels so much better in this new shape and form.

"There have been titles that have come out that have done it really well, and there have been others that maybe haven't done it so well. We just want to make sure that we stay in the 'done it really well' camp."

Would you love to see a remastered version of any of EA's games? Which would be the game you'd love to see? While a Remastered Mass Effect Trilogy would be nice, part of us would also love to see Burnout Paradise make a return.

If they did a Burnout and Mass effect remaster I would get them - as long as they are Dead Island priced and not Dead Rising/Marvel priced! I would love a kingdom of armlur (dunno how you spell it) but doubt that will happen

Mass effect trilogy HD remake with all the dlc would be highly welcomed. As two would the dead space series also. But what i really would love to see is a sequel to alice madness returns that would be sweet.

We have far too many remasters today, every new system we have and you can guarantee that a huge number of games will be from previous generations some of which can be good but i don't want to see endless amounts of remakes as that's just rather tedious.

@dean - Both Sony and MS seem to be hinting as this being the last 'console generation' as such - so new consoles come in are just upgraded versions of the consoles which run the same games - as they are x86 based so technically like a Pc. So remastering them now means they will live on without needing old consoles and emulation. I like remasters - especially if they are done in advance of a new sequel - like Mass effect or Darksiders...
