The announcement was made during Morgan Stanley’s Technology, Media & Telecom Conference. EA CFO Blake Jorgenson was asked about EA’s non-sports titles. In his response, he stated that Mass Effect will be releasing in the fourth-quarter of their fiscal year. Seeing as it ends on March 31, the game should be launching between January and March of 2017.
In the full quote, Jorgenson reveals a few more release periods. “We’ve got a great year ahead,” he says. “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 these are first-person shooters and will be targeted around the fast, action-driver 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.”
Mass Effect Andromeda was announced less than a year ago during EA’s E3 press conference. Since then, details have been minimal, leading people to wonder about a delay. Hopefully we find out more this year.
Mass Effect: Andromeda is one of our most anticipated games of 2017.
