Back in March, chief financial officer of EA Blake Jorgensen stated that the highly anticipated Sci-Fi RPG Mass Effect Andromeda would be delay until Q4-2016 during a technology conference. Despite the news coming from a member high up member of EA’s team, there wasn’t any reasoning or word from Bioware about why the game had been pushed a few months from the Holiday release schedule.
“As we’ve been playing the game at the studio recently, it’s showing us that we’re taking the game in the right direction,” said Aaryn Flynn, general manager of BioWare, in a post on the Mass Effect website. “But we also know we need the right amount of time to make sure we deliver everything the game can be and should be — that’s our commitment from all of us to all of you. Because of that, Mass Effect: Andromeda will now ship in early 2017.”
For now, we’ll have to wait for EA’s pre-E3 event, EA Play, as the developer plans to provide an update on the game during the event. However if Dragon Age: Inquisition was any indication, don’t expect to hear a lot from the team aside from a short trailer.
Andromeda is currently in development for PS4, Xbox One and PC using the Frostbite Engine.
