EA CFO: Mass Effect: Andromeda Release Delayed to Q1 2017, Titanfall 2 out This Year
Mass Effect: Andromeda won’t make its previously announced holiday 2016 release window, with EA CFO Blake Jorgensen confirming that it will arrive in Q1 2017 (January 2017 – March 2017).
Speaking at the Morgan Stanley Technology Media and Telecom Conference yesterday, Jorgensen revealed the delay, while also announcing that the new Titanfall will arrive between October 2016 and December 2016:
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 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 [Catalyst] runner game this first quarter, and then we have Mass Effect [Andromeda], which is a sci-fi action game, in our fourth quarter [of the fiscal year]. So big year ahead and we’re pretty excited.
What do you think of the delay?
