Mass Effect 2 Release Window Made Official; Trilogy in the Works


BioWare announced today that Mass Effect 2 will be releasing for Xbox 360 and Windows PC in early 2010.

This “dark second chapter” will be part of a larger three part story arc.  It was widely rumored that the Mass Effect franchise would be made into a trilogy, but now it is official.

No date for a PS3 release likely means Sony fans will miss out unless they have a competent PC.  If you also have a Mac at, you’re just S.O.L.
