Mass Effect: Andromeda won’t arrive anytime soon according to BioWare’s general manager, Aaryn Flynn.
He announced on a new blogpost that the next Mass Effect title will definitely not come in 2016, because the developers will need extra time to develop the game. New enemies, more freedom for players, new allies and brand new worlds to conquer: features that need a lot of work and extra hours of development in order to fully realize the whole concept of Andromeda .
Mass Effect will be also the first title to be fully developed with the Frostbite engine for current gen consoles, making it the most powerful game created by the studio. Bioware reassured us that this will be the best game in the history of the franchise, so obviously the developers have raised their own expectations about the final output pretty high.
Aaryn Flynn believes that Mass Effect: Andromeda will probably arrive sometime in early 2017 and the studio will be able to present more material about the game in the next E3 during the EA PLAY press conference on June 12th.
