Blake Jorgesen, Electronic Arts' CFO, revealed during the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media and Telecom Conference that Mass Effect Andromeda won't release in Holiday 2016 like originally planned.
During the event, Jorgesen talked about several games that are currently in development at EA, and confirmed that Mass Effect Andromeda will release during the publisher's fourth quarter of fiscal year 2016. This means that the game will release in the first quarter of 2017.
"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," said Jorgesen. "Both of those are first-person shooters and will be targeted around the fast, action-driven 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 will be available on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
