Anyone hoping that Mass Effect: Andromeda would be released this year will be disappointed to hear that it looks like it’s not going to surface until early 2017.
EA chief financial officer Blake Jorgensen commented on the release during EA’ presentation at the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media and Telecom Conference.
“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 those are first-person shooters and will be targeted around the fast, action-driven 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.”
EA’s fourth financial quarter means the game has now slipped to the first quarter of 2017. The game was expected to appear at the end of 2016.
