Mass Effect Andromeda kicks off a new trilogy in Bioware's science-fiction adventure series sometime in 2017 for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. The game will launch with visual improvements for the PlayStation 4 Pro, through Bioware hasn't gone into detail as to the full scope of those improvements.
"In the world of PS Pro, we do similar things where we say, 'Okay, what are the strengths of the console, and how can we optimise to make that experience best for players?' In terms of PS Pro, we'll probably talk more technical about that in January or February," Bioware producer Michael Gamble told Stevivor.
According to Gamble, Mass Effect Andromeda is currently not in the planning stages for the Xbox One Scorpio, coming later this year.
"For Scorpio, we have absolutely no plans right now. You never know what'll happen after that," said Gamble.
The same reply was given for a potential Nintendo Switch version of the Bioware RPG.
"Yeah, not right now, no," Gamble replied. "We're not planning on it. If the Switch launches and everyone's just yammering for Mass Effect, who knows. We never want to close doors like that."
Bioware has not classically released games for Nintendo platforms. There are only two titles in the developer's library: Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood for Nintendo DS and Mass Effect 3 for Wii U. Given Mass Effect Andromeda's partial focus on visual fidelity, it's unsurprising that there's not a Switch version in development. New footage of the game will be coming tomorrow at Nvidia's CES 2017 keynote presentation.
