Mass Effect 2 is not a Microsoft exclusive, says BioWare
BioWare makes some killer role-playing games, and PC and Xbox 360 owners are likely getting excited about the release of Mass Effect 2. But in an interview with Joystiq, BioWare’s Matt Atwood explained that EA owns the rights to Mass Effect, and therefore the game is not an exclusive for Microsoft.
BioWare has already announced that Dragon Age: Origins will be available on the PS3, along with the PC and Xbox 360. As far as the intellectual property itself, EA owns the rights to Mass Effect and the game could end up on the PlayStation 3.
A statement from Atwood certainly does not allude to the possibility PS3 owners will see Mass Effect 2. “We’ve only announced 360 and PC,” Atwood said. “At this point we’re really focused on those platforms.”
But given the fact that EA holds the rights to the game, and that BioWare is planning on releasing a PS3 version of Dragon Age: Origins, there is a chance Mass Effect 2 could make its way to Sony’s console.
