Peter Moore says that a Mass Effect trilogy is not happening

EA's Peter Moore seems to have stopped any hope of a Mass Effect Remaster for PS4 and Xbox One.

Speaking to IGN in a recent interview, Moore said that the company would rather focus on the future than the past, saying that doing a remaster now would just feel “like pushing stuff out because you’ve run out of ideas.”

“I don’t know where we find the time to do remakes. We’re a company that just likes to push forward," he said.

Moore added that EA could make “an easy buck on remastering Mass Effect,” but at present doesn’t have “teams lying around doing nothing.” 

“Is there demand? Yes, there’s thousands of people who want it,” he said. “Do we need millions? I don’t know. Our blinders are on and [we are] looking toward future. If you allow yourself to take the easy road – not to diss remastering great franchises – but there are so many opportunities for us to have people go to something else.

“We want to focus on the future and delivering new IP and new experiences. There’s easy money to be made all over this industry, but the real focus should be on being player-first and focused on delivering new IP and new experiences.

“We just feel like we want to go forward. There’s a little thing called Mass Effect Andromeda that we’re totally focused on at BioWare and it’s gonna be magnificent.”

Would you like to see a remastered trilogy of Mass Effect on PS4 and Xbox One?

Is he doing what other devs and companies do? Saying it isn't coming but really it is?

They keep changing their minds a lot, one minute they say are not, then they are following Activisions success, and now not again. It may still be coming to Xbox ONE via BC, they would require little work and probably only a bit of tweaking by Microsoft

They have decided not to remaster Mass Effect as its easier to keep remastering FIFA Madden and NhL every year for the next 50 years. Just like with BF1 they took Star Wars and painted it WW1 instead utterly pathetic
