Even though there’s still no official release date confirmed for Mass Effect: Andromeda, at least now we have a ballpark date regarding the game’s release. Unfortunately, the new Mass Effect game won’t be arriving in 2016 at all, as Electronic Arts has recently revealed during an investor call that it plans to launch it during its Q4 2016 fiscal year. What this means is that Mass Effect: Andromeda will arrive sometime between January and March 2017. As far as Titanfall 2 and Battlefield 5 are concerned, EA has stated that these titles will be released during its Q3 2016 fiscal year, and so we still have quite a bit of waiting time ahead of us.
Blake Jorgensen, the chief financial officer over at EA has stated the following:
“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.”
As long as the aforementioned games turn out to be polished and optimized properly for various platforms, I think that a bit of waiting time is certainly worth it. Let’s just hope that they won’t be delayed, though.
