Speaking to the microphones of Stevivor, Mike Gamble of BioWare spoke of the versions for Xbox Scorpio and PlayStation 4 Pro of Mass Effect Andromeda, also hinting at the possibility of seeing the game on Nintendo Switch in the future.
Mike Gamble of BioWare spoke of the PS4 Pro and Xbox Scorpio version of Mass Effect: Andromeda and a possible porting of Nintendo Switch.
As for the PS4 Pro version, Gamble confirms full support to the platform, as announced during the PlayStation Meeting of 7 September: “In the world of PS4 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 PS4 Pro, we’ll probably talk more technical about that in January or February”
However he argued the more cautious statements regarding support for Xbox Scorpio: “For Scorpio, we have absolutely no plans right now. You never know what’ll happen after that,” were the tones used also with regard to a possible version of the game for Switch “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.”
In the past Mass Effect 3 had arrived, albeit late, even on the Wii U, then the chances that Andromeda landing even on Switch console are not really close to zero.
Mass Effect: Andromeda is expected by the spring of 2017 on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4, at the moment BioWare has not yet announced the release date of the game.
