It looks like Mass Effect Andromeda will be coming out in early 2017, rather than late 2016 like many were expecting.
Speaking at the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media and Telecom Conference 2016, EA Chief Financial Officer Blake Jorgensen said that the new Mass Effect would be released in the fourth quarter of the next financial year - in other words, between January 1 and March 31, 2017.
We've got a great year ahead. For the first time I'm trying to dampen down Wall Street expectations, which is a good position to be in. We've got our Battlefield first-person shooter coming in the third quarter, and our third party title that Respawn built... it's called Titanfall... it's the second title they brought out under that brand.
Both those are first-person shooter and will be targeted around both fast action-driven shooter market as well as the strategy driven market in the quarter.
We have all our sports games, we have Mirror's Edge, a runner game coming out in the 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 had previously announced a Holiday 2016 release window for the game. There's been no official word of a delay, so it could just be that Jorgensen misspoke. We've reached out to EA for clarification.
