Ah fuck.

Not too disappointed, prefer a polished game over a rushed early release one

Posted by redbliss

This is definitely a good delay. More time to make the game better and more time to play other games.

More time for polish, but also for EA's other titles to get love.

Damn it !

Posted by puddingface

Certainly not  concupiscible. Prolonging it this much will definitely steal some of the dramatic effect.

Posted by Dookysharpgun
As long as they spend their time actually crafting extra missions and choices and not shoehorn us into linear storytelling like DA2, I'll be cool with the delay. Otherwise, they're dead to me...but skyrim will ease the pain :D

I have patience, i can wait. There's so many games we can play while we wait. Duke Nukem and L.A Noire is out soon. We got some Skyrim coming up. Some Elder Scrolls also.

Totally saw this coming. I have so many games i'm trying to work my way through though right now and so much stuff i'm looking forward to this year that it doesn't really matter. I really need to get a grip on those drunk amazon and XBLM purchases :S

Posted by Zanthox

I expected this from the second they announced it at the VGA's.

Posted by Edwardryu

it's OK. there are so many games coming out this year. so far we have already enough new games within 6 months. we have rage, deux human revolution, duke nukem, the wicther 2, dirt 3, assassin's creed revelation,  battlefield 3, gears of war 3 (for console kiddy), skyrim, and so on. so many games are coming. so ME 3 in first three months in 2012 is a good choice. just need to take a break.

Just take your time with it I say - better that rushing it and messing it up.

Good. After what they did by rushing DA2. I'm glad they're going to . . . you know, polish a game.

*sniff* sad.

"More time for Skyrim!"  My thoughts exactly, good sirs. :)

oh well, more time for skyrim i guess.

 

-i'm the best at space.

Posted by UnsolvedParadox

I'm cool with this, 2 years between games is fine with me.

Posted by zef40

Good, far too many games are spoilt by an obvious rush release.

Also screw mass effect MP, I mean seriously, no thanks, it wont make up for a watered down 1 player (which it inevitably will be with a MP component hanging on like an unwanted bogey)
Posted by PieGuy

That's a relief, now I have time to play Skyrim.
Don't know how I'm going to afford the xmas game onslaught, I'll buy Skyrim then buy the other games on a monthly basis. My studies are gonna suffer =(

Posted by Danishmaggot

Good. There is waaaaay to many games coming out this holiday anyway.

Posted by doombringer

i don't mind it just means that the final game will be that much better.

Posted by McShank

this means I can actually play ME1 and 2 for the first time now before the series is done :D!!! Go 15$ steam sales!

Posted by CookieMonster

How the fuck did I miss this news?

Posted by shinluis

Man I wish I could be laser focused too

Posted by Maxszy

More time for Skyrim AND more time for BioWare to spend time and really polish this off. 


In the end, this is probably a good move. While I love Mass Effect, I also want it to be the best that it can be.
Posted by bmehlers

I knew that this would be delayed.  I am glad they are taking extra time to ensure that ME 3 is as great as it can be.  This not only gives me more time to play some of the games I missed from last year, but some of the awesome releases planned for 2011; before I play through ME 3 several times.

Posted by 01wilsonj

Awesome, i still need to do a perfect me1 and then me2 save ready to import it into me3 x

Posted by SPCTRE

Here's hoping this is a sign they have learned from the rushed DA2 release.

Posted by TheCrushader

More sales for Skyrim, then! :D

Posted by morrelloman

Come On, Man! They had to add hermaphrodite Shepard option  for those who just can't choose.

Posted by Vitor

If one more person links to either the youtube clip or pic of Vader's "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO", so help me God...


Also, with Batman, Skyrim and Uncharted all coming out at the same time, I'm frankly relieved. Plus another 6 months of development should do wonders. Scrapping the entirely linear, corridor-like shooting galleries and making them a little more freeform and open would be great!
Posted by probablytuna

To me, I think this is a good decision. Normally delays suck, but this is an exception. I want the Mass Effect 3 experience to be as perfect as possible, so if that means a few months more to wait, then so be it. Also, with the amount of games coming out this year, I'm glad 2012 has its fair share of big blockbuster games. Work hard Bioware!

Posted by CitizenKane

It sucks, but I'm not really bothered by it.  Mass Effect 2 was pushed back into the early month of the next year and look how it turned out.

Posted by LoneWolf75

Oh well I'll just play more Skyrim and Dark Souls until it's released, not a problem at all.

Posted by MajesticOverlord

It's truly is a shame that we won't get to gorge on ME3 yet but considering the fact that they're really going the extra mile to polish the game and truly make it the best in the series I can overlook the fact that it isn't coming out this year. 

Posted by Davey

This is my least favourite delay on The Citadel.

Inflammatory statement is Inflammatory.

As much as I love various Multiplayer games, I still get the most out of a finely crafted single player experience and the narrative it brings with it. MP could never replicate that same sort of emotional investment.

I for one am not too bothered about the delay, there is enough games out as it is, and I will struggle to get through all of those in time! We're definitely not left wanting for quality at the moment.

If we learned anything from DA2 it should be: BioWare needs to take their time developing games. Don't rush that shit!

Because some of us would rather stab ourselves in the eyes with forks than plan an online multiplayer game.  I'll take a proper story and character development over being shot at by a 12 year old that likes using swear words, thank you very much. "
This.

PISSSSSS!!!!!

Posted by Linkster7

ARRRRRRRAAAAHAHHAHAHAAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAH

Although I find it titillating that there actually is a game that makes me this mad when it gets delayed. 

Posted by awe_stuck

Mayb they made it a lil too DA2 and decided to fix it.. hahaha jk  Pretty sure most of the people who made that pile of shit werent workin on Mass Effect..


Anyway, they are makin the game more like a shooter, or adding multiplayer! ie they are fine tuning and polishing mass effect 3 :) which is a good thing. i dont mind waiting for the 3rd one, i mean the 2nd one pretty much feels like it just came out a few months ago anyway

if it doesnt come out in jan or march next year then i will be super pissed tho
Posted by thehideousshrew

How very surprising...

Posted by ElStevo

Yes, this is great news. I hope BioWare takes all the time they need to make it as awesome as possible.
Posted by Eyz

I always rpefer this kind of announcement over the "we brought back the release date EARLIER" and end up with a rushed out project. (Sonic 2006, Prince of Persia: Forgotten Sands, etc..)
