Mass Effect PS3 rumours are “inaccurate,” says EA

EA has told videogaming247 that any rumours regarding a PS3 port of its hit BioWare space RPG, Mass Effect, are… wrong.

It was expected that the franchise would go multiplatform after EA acquired BioWare from MGS for $860m back in Oct 2007. Rumours of a PlayStation 3 port have persisted ever since.

“The rumour regarding Mass Effect being developed for PS3 is inaccurate,” said the rep. “Hope that helps.”

When we asked whether that means any future games in the franchise would remain solely on 360 the rep replied:

“Impossible for EA to provide comment on this given that no such games have been announced.”

Rumours of a sequel were rife earlier this month when a CMPEvents listing revealed that BioWare’s Corey Andruko and Dusty Everman are to hold a talk on Mass Effect 2’s level design at GDC 09.
