So, vacation replanning to early 2012 it is.
Hmm... All right I am fine with this. If they want to make it great, go ahead.
This is actually pretty reassuring. If they are taking the initiative to delay then the are just putting more time into the game to make it a more complete, polished product. I'm all for them taking as much time as they need to do this series justice.
after the abortion that was DA2, this is welcome news.
Good. IMO they need at least 2 years total to make this game great, so early 2012 sounds right.This is probably the last game in the trilogy, they can't allow themselves to screw this up.
I'm happy with this. The delay gives it more time to fully develop instead of becoming another Dragon Age 2 and more importantly, it means more time with Skyrim.
Kinda happy cause now its at least going to have a 2 year development cycle
I am more then happy that they delayed it, In fact I would be even better if they pushed it all the way to next spring. How can you miss something if it never goes away?
My first reaction to this news: Oh thank god! My wallet won't be as destroyed this holiday season.
It's settled then.Uncharted 3 GOTY 2011Mass Effect 3 GOTY 2012.:)
Glad for the delay. it gives them more time to make the game as good as possible :)
As the sole human being who hasn't finished ME2, I'm totally down with this.
ME3 a 2012 game, competition for 2011's Game of the Year gets fierce :p
I think I may have called this somewhere. The rear end of this year is completely packed, stuff is bound to get evacuated.
Get ready for more delays like this once Activision reveals Modern Warfare 3 at E3.
Good, last thing the series needs is a Dragon Age 2 cash grab rush job.
Cold hard business move. They're scared of the profit margins in face of going against Skyrim, arkham, gears and call of duty electric boogaloo.
Hope Bioware/EA has learned their lesson from Dragon Age 2 and are taking their time in making a proper addition to the Mass Effect series.
Oh thank GOD. After the let-down that was dragon age 2, it makes me really happy they decided to take some time with this one.
" Hope Bioware/EA has learned their lesson from Dragon Age 2 and are taking their time in making a proper addition to the Mass Effect series. "
I'm actually very glad they did, means more time to polish and perfect it.
ME3 is going to be amazing!
I was hoping that ME3 would be delayed. Q3/Q4 2011 is way too crowded at the moment (even with the delay of ME3). I mean, there's Gears 3, Resistance 3, Uncharted 3, Skyrim, Battlefield 3 and (for some folks) the new CoD.
This thread is surprisingly full of people who are okay with a delay.
I'm actually really glad to hear this. This year, especially the last quarter, is crowded enough as it is.
After the whole Dragon Age 2 mess I'm kinda glad they delayed it ... if that means the game will actually be good.
Hopefully that means that they learned their lesson with Dragon Age 2...*fingers crossed*
Seriously, this is the best ME3 news I could have gotten.
A slight bummer, but it'll benefit from avoiding the crowded holiday period. If the last game is any indication, the wait will be worth it.
Can't believe I just sat and read through 184 comments just going "called it" and "good, DA2 sucked". Either way I don't mind really, as long as Skyrim isn't delayed as well. *knocks on wood*
That's fine by me, but tbh i'm a slacker who still hasn't played ME2 even after pre-ordering it ... I've only done one play-through on ME1 and I was a bit upset that I ended up on a path to beating the game w/out realizing it, leaving many loose ends in the form of incomplete side-quests. Still, I guess that's what makes the first attempt so fun.. you're not expecting all the triggers.
I don't mind waiting it'll be worth it. Don't want it to end up being a rushed product as Dragon Age 2 was. I enjoyed it but the end was appalling and felt rushed.
At least it goes well with the whole end of the world theme.
Man, I hate being right.
lol "more time to make the game better!" people are ridiculous.
joins in the crowd, and say this was kinda expected
Of course I would love to play Mass Effect 3 as soon as possible, but I'm not surprised....kinda expected it. Plus, I want them to make sure the game is awesome.
I care about the quality more then when it comes out. Bioware works hard at that in my book.
Darn, they'll end this year with a downer with Dragon Age II.
" lol "more time to make the game better!" people are ridiculous. "
After seeing what you did with DA:2 - Bioware, you take as long as you need.
This gives me time to restart my Shepard legacy because I had lost all interest in ME3 after my save files got corrupted.
I am not even remotely surprised.Sweet, this means i can buy more stuff during the holidays, maybe i can get Skyrim....
I didn't expect this at all. Wow. Well, at least there are plenty of other games to look forward to. If this was to happen, it would have been nice if they also took time to make the Arrival dlc good.
