EA “Embarrassed” by How Good Its 2017 Releases Will Be

Mirrors Edge: Catalyst, Mass Effect: Andromeda and a new Battlefield are included in EA’s 2017 release lineup.

Electronic Arts is releasing so many awesome games in 2017, it is calling it an “embarrassment of riches”. Or so EA COO Peter Moore said at the Credit Suisse Technology, Media, and Telecom conference. Mirrors Edge: Catalyst has been pushed back from its initial FY16 release date to FY17, and will join Mass Effect: Andromeda, Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 and a new games in the Battlefield and Titanfall franchises.

Most of these games we already sort of new were coming, with the new Battlefield being the only (albeit, slight) surprise. All EA said of the title was that it would be a military-style game.

Moore went on to say that having so many high-profile games release in the same year is a “It’s a high class problem to have,” and the challenge will be giving each title enough “breathing room” to ensure it doesn’t cannibalize sales of another.

Earlier in the year, EA stated that Star Wars Battlefront sequels were already in the works, and the first game’s season pass is due to come out in the first half of 2016.

It’s a shame to see Mirror’s Edge pushed back again, but other than that, there isn’t anything particularly exciting about EA’s 2017 lineup, despite what Moore would like you to believe.
