Mass Effect: Andromeda Not Releasing in 2016

Cue the sad music =(

Thanks to the GAF, we have learned via EA’s CFO in a presentation at the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media, and Telecom Conference  that Mass Effect: Andromeda will not be releasing in 2016, but rather is promised for early 2017. The full quote, found by user salromano, is below. Do not be confused by the wording of the game as Q4; although stated as a Q4 game, such a statement means that the game will release Q1 2017 in the calendar year.

“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.”

As a game announced last year at E3 2015, this news is not too surprising to me. Your thoughts? Tell me below!
