Mass Effect Remastered Trilogy Reportedly Delayed to Early 2021
Rumors of a Mass Effect Remastered Trilogy have been swirling for years, with trusted sources suggesting the game collection would release in October. After a retailer listed Mass Effect Remastered Trilogy last week, fans began waiting with bated breath for the official announcement.
However, it looks like it may be a while off yet. GamesBeat journalist Jeff Grubb has now published an update, stating that Electronic Arts has decided to delay Mass Effect Remastered Trilogy to early 2021. The main reason cited is the need to substantially enhance the first game in the series, originally released back in 2007, both in terms of graphics and gameplay.
Grubb also went on to say the package will include all single player DLCs for the respective games, but no multiplayer (available in Mass Effect 3 for the first time in the franchise).

On the fringes of known space, something is silently abducting entire human colonies. Now Shepard must work with Cerberus, a ruthless organization devoted to human survival at any cost, to stop the most terrifying threat mankind has ever faced.
To even attempt this perilous mission, Shepard must assemble the galaxy’s most elite team and command the most powerful ship ever built. Even then, they say it would be suicide. Commander Shepard intends to prove them wrong.
Just like in the previous game, what you say to the other characters matters a great deal. Fortunately, the conversation system has been improved.

Also, Shepard can interrupt the conversation when given the appropriate prompt, taking situations into new directions that could help or hinder the mission.
