Update: Eurogamer has also reported on this story, with the outlet claiming that it "understands" that the date is currently accurate, and barring any further delays, the game should be released on March 12th.
Original story: The last few months of 2020 were filled with rumours about Mass Effect Legendary Edition and when it might release, and while we do now know it's officially on the way, we're still waiting on a definitive launch date.
However, two retailers - one in Singapore and one in Indonesia - have now both started advertising a date of March 12, 2021 for the remastered trilogy, which might give us an indication of when the game will arrive.
Whenever it does eventually release, the game will feature single-player base content and DLC from Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3, plus promo weapons armours and packs - all remastered and optimised for 4K Ultra HD.
According to VentureBeat journalist Jeff Grubb, it was originally supposed to arrive late last year before it was pushed back to Spring 2021. Spring doesn't technically begin until Saturday, March 20th, so either these listings are incorrect, or EA has decided to move the game's release forward ever so slightly.

Sad that there are only 2 releases I'm looking forward to this year. This, a remake. And MechWarrior 5, a port.
The games I'm waiting for the most this year! Hyped
Never played Mass Effect before, Day 1 buy for me..
@Bmartin001 I’m so jealous that you get to experience it for the first time. Best cast of characters in video game history, imo. The only game I can think of that even comes close is FF6.
Lol for a good few minutes my smooth brain thought this was that dead space remaster rumour confirmed to be true and will be released on march
Is it too late to change the cover art?
Im sorry but i don't see the point on this with the Xbox1 / Series X when the Mass Effect Collection works just fine.
I recently tried to replay the series on the new box and 1 is rough man. Getting around the citadel on the elevators is a lot of down time I will probably buy it though as I never played 3
Firstly, I think it's always a good idea to play the best version of a game. Secondly, all DLC is included (as opposed to the standard version). Thirdly, I guess we're all hoping for that remaster to iron out some kinks of the original trilogy (loading times on the Citadel). The resolution bump to 4K won't hurt, either.
Wonder if this will be coming to Gamepass seeing as MS and EA are pretty chummy lately. Would be quite a nice get of it did. Hopefully can carve out time to play these again.
@Benjamin it does really look like an ant man movie poster. Perhaps a Guardians of the Galaxy crossover thrown in.
@redd214 it will, just a year after launch. EA Play has a premium service where you get day n date but you will have to pay for that service. I've never played these games, i can wait one more year to try it in its remastered glory in EA Play. Gamepass brings out my inner cheapofillipo!!!!
I’ll wait for it to show up on Game Pass/EA Play. Besides, it’s too close to Monster Hunter.
I'm so excited to play Mass Effect again, i really hope they made a lot of improvements to the first game. Still super disappointing it's not coming to Switch though
My favorite games from X360 era.
Is no one else just a little worried about the fact we could be only 2 months away from release and we've still not got a gameplay video or even some screenshots? This could be Kingdoms of Amalur Re-Reckoning all over again with only a cheap upscale job. Returning to the ME games again shows the combat is extremely clunky by modern day standards. I hope they've polished many of the fundamentals to make this worth a purchase.
Think I'm the odd one out here but am not at all interested in this. I loved the first mass effect, enjoyed the second enough but lost interest through the third and can't even remember if I finished it (think I did but finale was meh).
There are just too many games in my back log to worry about redoing all this again with a let down towards the end. Reminds me of Game of Thrones. Loved it until the last season and couldn't make myself watch the whole thing again knowing how disappointed the end season was.
Absolutely loved the originals, but I'll be calming down my hype until I see actual game footage of how good the remaster actually is.
I'm concerned it will just be upped resolution considering it's 3 HUGE games bundled in one package and we've seen NOTHING so far, possibly only 2 months from release.
