Mass Effect: Andromeda slips to 2017

The next instalment in BioWare's epic sci-fi RPG series will miss its Christmas 2016 release date.

As reported by VG247, EA CFO Blake Jorgensen told attendees at the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media and Telecom Conference that the game will be out in the first quarter of 2017.

The holiday 2016 date was announced at E3 last year.

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,” he said.

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.”
