Rumours are flying today that Microsoft's hotly anticipated sci-fi RPG, Mass Effect
, has slipped from its expected June release date to September.
The news allegedly comes from a Microsoft press event. In spite of that apparently reliable source, however, Andy Irving, Xbox UK PR manager, told SPOnG this morning, "As yet we don't have a confirmed release date".
Microsoft seems keen to avoid jumping the gun, with Irving also saying, "BioWare just want to make the best game they can." To SPOnG's ears that sounds suspiciously like we should be prepared for Mass Effect
to ship even later than September.
If Mass Effect
is released in September it will come around the same time as Microsoft's other big first party RPG, Blue Dragon
SPOnG took a peek at both the titles at GDC recently. You can find out what we saw here.
