Mass Effect Andromeda Not Planned For A Xbox Scorpio Or Switch Release

Mass Effect

Bioware plans to begin a start of a new trilogy with Mass Effect Andromeda which is set to be released somewhere around 2017 for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The game will also be launching for the PS4 with visual improvements, however at this time it remains unclear as to what those improvements may be.

Speaking To Stevivor producer Michael Gamble had this to say about the PS4 Pro release

“In the world of PS Pro, we do similar things where we say, ‘Okay, what are the strengths of the console, and how can we optimise to make that experience best for players?’ In terms of PS Pro, we’ll probably talk more technical about that in January or February,”

However shockingly enough there are as of yet no plans for the game to release on Nintendo Switch or the Xbox One Scorpio, which is a tad bit surprising considering the original Mass Effect was supposed to be an Xbox One exclusive. Here is what Gamble had to say about the whole situation.

“For Scorpio, we have absolutely no plans right now. You never know what’ll happen after that,” said Gamble.  

Although it is worth pointing out that these plans might change in the future and that nothing is set in stone, however it is a bit of a worrying sign considering the fact that the game does plan on a PS4 Pro release. Well we will just have to see when the Scorpio rolls around next year to whether it will have Mass Effect Andromeda

When asked about a Nintendo Switch Release

“Yeah, not right now, no,” “We’re not planning on it. If the Switch launches and everyone’s just yammering for Mass Effect, who knows. We never want to close doors like that.”
