The lights are on
Today, on the BioWare forums, the company's community coordinator Chris Priestly started a thread called "2 new screenshots and new release date information." His initial post revealed the earth-shattering news that two new screenshots have been added to the Mass Effect 2 screenshot gallery...oh...and the fact that Mass Effect 3 has been delayed until 2012.An official quote was also presented:Today we have confirmed that Mass Effect 3 will be released in the first three months of 2012. The development team is laser focused on making sure Mass Effect 3 is the biggest, boldest and best game in the series, ensuring that it exceeds everyone’s expectations.” said Casey Hudson, Executive Producer Mass Effect series.While this is heartbreaking news for the millions of gamers that have been waiting for ME 3, the fact that BioWare is making the move to ensure that the game is of appropriate quality is promising.The company said it will have more specific details about the new release date as the time approaches.

I pretty much knew that was going to happen,I mean just ONE year to develop a ending to a series such as mass effect,predictable.
I'm glad. there is too much going on at the end of the year. i really want to play ME3 but i also don't want it to end.
It did seem to be coming out a little too soon, so I should have seen this coming. This actually is little bit of a relief for me, because it seemed that it was releasing too soon.
I'm actually not disappointed of this. There's alreday too many awesome games coming out in October/November this year, such as Arkham City, Uncharted 3, and Skyrim to boot. This will lessen the abuse my wallet will be facing this year... somewhat.
i am so happy now i get to play through skyrim without having to worry about saving the universe
Aw, fish paste! I was looking forward to playing it at the end of the year. Oh, well. Something to look forward to for next year, then.
Is this really a delay?? Last I hear they were aiming for end of year/start of next year release, so it seems to be right on track. Sure, don't get me wrong - quality being equal - I'd rather have it sooner but ME is one of those series that so far has delivered and I'm willing to wait to ensure it comes out right.
There goes my vote for VGA's Game of the Year.
Noooooo! oh well, as long as it makes it the best game ever made.
No effin way! my day's completely ruined now :'(
