BioWare: EA (and Not MGS) “owns” the Mass Effect IP

ME2There’s hope yet for PLAYSTATION 3 owners, looking to get a sweet fix of that juicy Mass Effect 2, it might still come to that big black box yet.

According to Joystiq, when they talked to BioWare’s Matt Atwood, he confirmed that the game was still being released as a 360 exclusive alongside the PC, he did confirm that EA, and not Microsoft Games Studios who published Mass Effect 1 for the 360 two years ago, own the IP after they bought BioWare a year and a half ago.

Yes. EA owns the rights to Mass Effect.

And there ya have it, believe PS3 owners.

It’s out 2010 for 360 though as it stands.
