Bioware CONFIRMS simultaneous release
Mass Effect eventually made it to the PC, but it was a little late, albeit with some nice improvements to the interface. There will be no delay for the sequel though, as BioWare has confirmed that the anticipated title will be getting a simultaneous release on the PC and Xbox 360.
"We learned a lot from building the PC version before, and having built it six months later there was a big difference. So we actually took what we learned from PC and put it back into 360," BioWare associate producer Jesse Houston told Videogaming247.
"Fundamentally, we want you to have the same gameplay experience, but just with the difference in controls. This time round, doing it at the same time for a sim-ship, we can control the differences much more smoothly because its the same team building it now."
Mass Effect 2 is currently slated for release on both platforms in early 2010.
