Oooops someone is not going to get their christmas bonus at EA. Mass Effect 3 was listed on the EA store then pulled minutes later. Guess all the teasing thats been going around lately about Biowares new game will be Mass Effect 3 after all. There's a little information on the games storey over on joystiq if your intrested and I'd keep an eye out tomorrow for a possible official announcment at the Spike Videogame awards.
The EA Store has added a pre-order listing for Mass Effect 3 for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3. The listing includes a description that notes the "Earth is burning" and Commander Shepard (that's you!) has to gather the races of the galaxy to launch "one final mission" against machines striking from beyond known space.
