BioWare General Manager Aaryn Flynn confirmed in a blog post today that Mass Effect Andromeda has been delayed to early 2017, with more updates coming at E3 next month. Flynn wrote that the team “is exploring how far they can take this beloved franchise.”
“Yes, we’re building the best of what we all love about Mass Effect – amazing stories, characters and fun third-person shooter combat – and bringing them along with us on the expedition to Andromeda,” the post reads. “But we’re also excited to be introducing new features and ways you can enjoy a Mass Effect game.”
“As we’ve been playing the game at the studio recently, it’s showing us that we’re taking the game in the right direction. But we also know we need the right amount of time to make sure we deliver everything the game can be and should be – that’s our commitment from all of us to all of you,” Flynn continued. “Because of that, Mass Effect: Andromeda will now ship in early 2017. We can’t wait to show you how far we’re all going to go. We’ll see you at the EA PLAY press conference on June 12, with an update.”
Mass Effect Andromeda was announced at E3 2015, with an expected arrival of Holiday 2016.
