Mass Effect 3 Delayed Until Early 2012

It seems like Commander Shepard’s next voyage has been delayed for a brief period of time. Developer Bioware made the official delay announcement today, stating that Mass Effect 3 will see a short delay, with a new release date sometime during the “first three months of 2012.”

Executive producer, Casey Hudson, posted a message for the series’ fans on its official message board. He stated that “The development team is laser focused on making sure Mass Effect 3 is the biggest, boldest and best game in the series, ensuring that it exceeds everyone’s expectations.” He also posted a new team photo showing Shepard and his crew.

Though it may seem like a much longer wait, it’s really not. And it’s not a big deal because I’m sure the game will be well-worth waiting for. When has Bioware ever let us down?
