Bad news and maybe some good news for Mass Effect fans, Mass Effect 3 has been delayed to early 2012. The extra time is to be spent going into making the best game they can, but it still sucks for those who want to see how this highly acclaimed series ends.

The announcement of the delay appeared on BioWare's Mass Effect Facebook page
