Mass Effect: Legendary Edition has exceeded EA's pre-release sales predictions following a quarterly earnings call.
As of today, Mass Effect: Legendary Edition, the repackaged trilogy for next-gen hardware, has surpassed EA's early forecast in sales. After lifting the veil on the first-quarter earnings call, the gaming giant was quick to shed light on the latest milestone, saying the collection “reignited the passion of fans around the world, driving sales performance well above our expectations.”
But that's not all. In fact, to frost the cake, EA has now gone on to say that they will continue to pour more work into the franchise. Not only Mass Effect, but Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, which also found global success after launching on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S two months back.
Onwards and upwards!
Following the recent earnings call, EA CEO Andrew Wilson has touched base on both franchises, confirming the ongoing work for both platforms. Although keeping details scarce, Wilson did leave a lukewarm promise, saying EA is “going to continue to invest in both of these franchises as well as more of our amazing IP.”
In other news, Mass Effect 4 has been under the hammer for a short while now, meaning EA could very well be on the brink of shedding a much brighter light on the project. At present, however, we've been left with very little detail, other than it being a direct sequel to Mass Effect 3 and Mass Effect: Andromeda. Other than that, EA has uploaded a teaser to help add a smidgen of concrete to the concept, effectively keeping fans intrigued for the long haul. But that's about it, sadly.
