masseffect-020409During the company’s fiscal year conference call, EA’s CEO John Riccitiello dropped some hints about a few games, including BioWare’s space-themed RPG franchise Mass Effect, indicating it may not have an exclusive console home on the Xbox 360:

“[In Q4], BioWare will release Mass Effect 2 on multiple platforms,” he said during a Tuesday earnings call.

While the original game was exclusive to the 360, it later appeared on PC.  Riccitiello did not mention any console in his statement, but when Edge Online, who reported the news, tried to contact EA, a rep said that “the company could not get into specifics about what Riccitiello meant by his ‘multiple platform’ comment.”
