After months of speculation and rumors, Mass Effect fans have been treated to an N7 Day treat. Via the official BioWare blog, the company has confirmed that Mass Effect Legendary Edition will be coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC in Spring of 2021. The collection will include the single player campaigns, DLC, and weapons and armor packs from the original trilogy. BioWare confirms that the anthology of games will all be optimized for 4K Ultra HD, and will have enhancements for the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5. The team also released a short trailer for the game on their official Twitter page.

In a surprise additional announcement, BioWare also confirmed in the same blog that the next game in the Mass Effect series is also in development, under a "veteran team," though no other details are being made available at this time.

Just to be clear, this is a collection of the first three games right? Either my reading comprehension is trash or its not explicitly stated.
Yes, it is a collection of the original trilogy. Though the BioWare blog post explicitly calls out "single player base content," which tells me that Mass Effect 3's multiplayer likely won't be available in the Legendary Edition. Which is a bit of a shame if true, I had a lot of fun with that.

Oh nice! Hopefully character transfer between games will be simpler.
You just brought up flashbacks of moving my character from 2 to 3. I was able to get all of the actual data to transfer, but not my custom design. I had to go get the character code from ME2 and manually put it into 3 to get it over!

Really looking forward go the trilogy. I hope the new ME is not like MEA which is a buggy mess and boring enemy.

i've played the trilogy (yes, include me3) more than 10 times by now. my last 2 playtrhoughs are done 4 months ago (paragon male, renegade female) and im going to play again when legendary is out!

Okay but no switch release
i respect your opinion, but why? if someday this happening, is going to be a severe downgrade of the original anyways. or a direct port from OG trilogy.

I tried to do an OG trilogy replay last year, but I hit ME3 and just couldn’t get myself to play it. Not because I don’t like it, but because I hadn’t played it since release and I didn’t feel like spending $30 on the DLC to get the “full experience.” So I’m thrilled that Legendary will include all the DLC so I can finally experience the story in full
