Mass Effect Andromeda has been delayed from its holiday 2016 release to Q1 2017, according to EA CFO Blake Jorgensen.
Speaking at Morgan Stanley’s Technology, Media & Telecom Conference, Jorgensen was asked about EA’s non-sports titles. His response was that Mass Effect Andromeda would release in EA’s fourth quarter. As with many company calendars, Q4 means the months between January and March as it aligns with the financial year rather than calendar year.
We’ve got a great year ahead. 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 is due to release for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
