Could Mass Effect 3 multiplayer really make a comeback in Mass Effect Legendary Edition? At least this is what the insider Shpeshal Ed, who is considered as a reliable source, would like to have found out.
With the decision to forego the multiplayer of Mass Effect 3 as part of the Mass Effect Legendary Edition, the developers of BioWare not only made friends. Instead, numerous players have been waiting for the return of the multiplayer component in the past few days.
According to current rumors, as the insider Shpeshal Ed from XboxEra, who is considered a reliable source, said the decision in favor of multiplayer has already been made. This should be officially revealed at the EA Play event on July 22, 2021.
Just received word that there's a pretty good chance the multiplayer for Mass Effect 3 in the Legendary Edition will be revealed/announced at EA Play

Those responsible at BioWare themselves have so far neither wanted to comment nor confirm the information circulated by Shpeshal Ed. However, the studio recently pointed out that a return of the multiplayer part of Mass Effect 3 is definitely open to it, provided that the community shows its serious interest.
“I would never say no to that,” commented Project Director Mac Walters last week. “We want to see what kind of reception the Legendary Edition gets and what the demand for the multiplayer is. And then we’ll ask ourselves if we have the resources and time to bring it up to the quality level we and fans want.”
So let’s wait and see what happens in the coming weeks. The Mass Effect Legendary Edition is available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC and, thanks to the support for backward compatibility, can also be played on the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X/S.
