Rumored Mass Effect Trilogy Remastered Reportedly Delayed

VentureBeat reports that the release of a remastered Mass Effect trilogy they say is called the Mass Effect: Legendary Edition is being pushed back to early next year. This can't be considered a delay, as the product hasn't even been officially announced, so this whole story has to be considered a rumor. But they say they've heard from "people familiar with the development." They say the holdup is getting the remade version of the original first Mass Effect up to the quality of what they've accomplished with the other two games:
The primary factor holding up development, beyond the pandemic, is the original Mass Effect game. It currently does not live up to the quality of the rest of the package. It would make a poor first impression for new players, and it might disappoint fans who then won’t go on to play and experience the impressive upgrades for Mass Effect 2 and ME 3.

This is a problem with both the visuals and gameplay. The people working on the game understand the issues, and they want to do right by the franchise’s fans.
