Mass Effect Andromeda Delayed to Q1 2017

7

The next entry in the much anticipated Mass Effect series has been moved to Q1 2017.

Mass Effect Andromeda is now set to be released sometime in Q1 2017, having been moved from its original Holidays 2016 release window.

This news comes via EA CFO Blake Jorgensen, who was speaking at the Morgan Stanley’s Technology, Media & Telecom Conference. When asked to provide the details and updates on EA’s upcoming non-sports titles, Jorgensen stated that Mass Effect would launch in EA’s “fourth quarter.” With the fiscal year ending on March 31st, the game could launch anytime between January and March 2017.

“We’ve got a great year ahead. We’ve got our Battlefield first-person shooter game coming in the third quarter, and our third-party title that Respawn, our partner, built, it’s called Titanfall, it’s the second title that they brought into that brand. Both of these are first-person shooters and will be targeted around the fast, action-driver shooter market, as well as the strategy-driven market in that quarter. We have our Mirror’s Edge runner game this first quarter, and then we have Mass Effect, which is a sci-fi action game, in our fourth quarter. So big year ahead and we’re pretty excited,”

Mass Effect Andromeda was first announced during EA’s E3 press conference in 2015 for a Holiday 2016 release for the Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC.
