Under Gamescom-messen i august tente EA-sjef Patrick Söderlund et håp om at vi kanskje kunne få en remaster av Mass Effect-serien. Nå har en annen EA-sjef slukket det samme håpet. I et intervju forklarer nemlig Peter Moore at tiden ikke er moden for studioet å slippe en ny versjon av romeventyret:
"We're a company that is focused on delivering for the future. I was asked a question once [about remasters and I said] it's just not what we do. We've got incredibly talented dev studios around the world who are focused on delivering new IP, new experiences, [and] more and more live services."
Ifølge Moore og EA har de dessuten ikke tilgjengelige utviklere som kunne ha jobbet med remastere av gamle spill:
"Do we have teams lying around that are doing nothing right now that [can go and make remasters]? No we don't . We want to focus on the future and delivering new IP and new experiences. There's easy money to be made all over this industry, but the real focus should be on being player-first and focused on delivering new IP and new experiences and that's where our real focus is."
Moore avslutter deretter med å forklare at de vet at spillerne ønsker en remaster, men poengterer at de ikke vil gå for en enkel løsning:
"Is there demand? Yes, there's thousands of people who want it. Our blinders are on and [we are] looking toward future. We're a 34-year-old company that has thousands of pieces of IP around the world. Road Rash! If you allow yourself to take the easy road - not to diss remastering great franchises - but there are so many opportunities for us to have people go to something else."
