Mass Effect: Andromeda was originally set to be released in 2016, but EA has now stated that it will be pushed back to early 2017.
“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. 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.” – Blake Jorgensen, CFO of EA
The next battlefield was mentioned as it will be released in this upcoming Q3 along with Titanfall 2. Looks like EA is trying to space out the schedule to earn more money and not overlap games. Smart move? Maybe.
