Blake Jorgensen of Electronic Arts, the publisher behind “Mass Effect 3,” recently revealed his company’s plans in regards to how they will transition onto the PS4 and Xbox 720. According to a report by Gamastura on Feb. 12, the chief financial officer disclosed that they are in better position right now than they were in the past due to their focus on 10 to 15 core video games. He also mentioned that the research and development cost increase would be kept below $100 million. You can check out some fan made concept images of what the PS4 and Xbox 720 could look like in the slideshow at the top of this article and the comments from Blake Jorgensen below (courtesy of Gamastura):
We're much more focused now. We've got a core group of ten-to-fifteen titles. We'll stage those in terms of the transition and manage those costs through that. Our goal is to keep the cost increase for R&D under $100 million. And some of that will be in this year, some of that in '14, and some in our fiscal year '15.
“Mass Effect 3” was released by Electronic Arts for the PC, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 platforms in North America on March 6, 2012. The role-playing game was also ported to the Nintendo Wii U system late last year. You can purchase the product in the following link: “Mass Effect 3”
