Also, EA is in the works of a new installment of the Mass Effect franchise, which is currently experiencing a renaissance thanks to the Mass Effect Legendary Edition collection. Given that in-game ads are rather eye-rolling to the audience and people didn’t like it when it was rumored, EA won’t be implementing that anytime soon in the future.

However, players should take note that the company’s spokesperson did say that they were not currently concentrating on this and this might actually be implemented in the future. But right now, players can take a deep breath and start playing games without any in-game video advertisements.
