Mass Effect 2 Will Hit Xbox 360 First, PC Soon After
by Chris Faylor Mar 14, 2008 12:14pm CST tags:

The upcoming sequel to BioWare's sci-fi RPG Mass Effect will arrive on Xbox 360 first with a PC version hitting soon after, according to senior manager Matt Atwood.

"I believe we'll be Xbox 360 exclusive for at least a short period of time," Atwood told CVG. "We've got a really great PC fan base, we think it's really important to deliver the PC experience as quickly as possible," he continued in a VideoGamer interview.

The first entry in BioWare's planned Mass Effect trilogy arrived on Xbox 360 last fall, with a PC version, co-developed by Demiurge, due out May 6. Many had speculated that, following EA's acquisition of BioWare and the publishing rights for Mass Effect, the sequel would release simultaneously on multiple platforms.

BioWare has yet to specify a release window for Mass Effect 2.

EA announced today that Mass Effect 2 would be multiplatform (DUH).

Oh and why is this news? Didn't you think it would be coming to PC considering the original did aswell...

Inform people of the obvious?

Hey I got some news for you also. I heard Half-Life Episode 3 will be released on all three platforms!

Clearly you love exaggerating a small point. Not everyone is F5ing Kotaku every 2 seconds, after a while, most people forget about newsbits unless reminded. So yeah, he isn't committing a crime by posting that. You're just pissed off because its not coming to PS3.

Because I wouldn't buy it on the PC like I did the original?

With the SecuROM debacle and all that, I would say it was hardly obvious the game was coming to PC, or at least anywhere near the Xbox release.

Good news to hear... if theyre trying to be quick, I can hold out for the PC port. The PC version of the original was much, much better.

Yah, I've read his posts before. He sounds like a closet console fanatic.

I think the real newsworthy piece of this post is that the PC will follow quickly after, not a year later or whatever.

It's not really going to be a 360 exclusive...

This is good. I hate it when I buy 360 version only to find PC version is coming. I just hope they can fine tune it a little better. Should run really well as the engine would stay the same (Has to be playable on 360) but PC hardware has come a long way.

Can't wait for this one. Glad to hear that we won't have to wait an extra year to play it on PC. :)

And it's good they actually tell us, rather than playing cat and mouse

"360 at this time, no other platforms have been anounced." go die

I agree. Denying the PC version and then announce it after the Xbox release is lame but MS loves to do that sometimes.

forcing people to buy into their console

in a way, i wanted Forza2 and Dead or Alive, few other fighting games.

after few days realized how bad Forza2 is, so traded in for PGR4.

Back then, I bought the Xbox 360 for Gears of War. Then that was released for PC and I was a bit pissed about it. ME(360) came out and I bought it after some months, then a PC version was announced. I stopped playing ME(360) before the PC announcement because it just didn't work for me on a console. The wait for the PC version was well worth it.
