Mass Effect will hit the PC not on the 6th but now the 28th of May in the US, while the European release slides to June 6th.
The development team which is a close collaboration between BioWare and Demiurge agree they'd like just a little longer to "deliver the quality that our fans deserve."
"I have just confirmed with the development team that we are making a small change to the release date of Mass Effect for the PC," said Chris 'Evil Chris' Priestly, community overlord of BioWare.
"The team here at BioWare, working closely with the good folks at Demiurge Studios, has decided that a few more weeks in the studio will ensure we deliver the quality that our fans deserve."
A significant number of changes have been made to the PC version of the game, the inventory system has been revamped so gamers can more easily sift through their collected swag and mini-games have been altered too.
The "whack-a-mole" approach to decrypting has been replaced with a radial puzzle to better reflect the lore of Mass Effect's technology.
"The additional time will allow us to incorporate more play-testing feedback, add extra polish and tune the additional features so that Mass Effect is a natural and outstanding PC gaming experience."
