EA states that Mass Effect Legendary Edition sold well above expectations

During the opening statement of Electronic Art's Q1 2022 Earnings Call [PDF Transcript], CEO Andrew Wilson made some remarks regarding the recently-released Mass Effect Legendary Edition.

While we don't get any hard sales numbers, Wilson does remark that the re-release sold 'well above' expectations, as well as a renewed commitment to the Mass Effect IP. In the same breath, Wilson also makes the same commitment to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, another single-player adventure from the publisher.

Andrew Wilson's quote as given in the transcript can be found below.

There is enduring power to the franchisees and IP that we are building. The launch of Mass Effect Legendary Edition, the remaster of the first 3 Mass Effect games, reignited the passion of fans around the world, driving sales performance well above our expectations. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order coming to the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 was also a moment for new and returning players to jump into that amazing game. We're continuing to invest in both of these franchises as well as more of our amazing IP.


We know that BioWare plans to continue with the Mass Effect series; a brief teaser was showcased at The Game Awards in 2020, though it seems like it might be a while before we get anything concrete. BioWare of course has also teased a new Dragon Age project for a few years now, though we also have yet to see much from it either.

In the meantime, you can check out our Mass Effect Legendary Edition Review if you haven't had a chance to check out the remaster for yourself just yet.
