Earlier this year, those looking forward to Mass Effect: Andromeda were hit with the disappointing news that the BioWare-developed space RPG had been delayed. During the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media and Telecom Conference, EA CFO Blake Jorgensen revealed that Andromeda wouldn’t be released until early 2017, instead of the previously announced ‘holiday 2016’ release date.
But some fans questioned the CFO’s comments, asking why this news had come during a conference speech and not via a press release or via BioWare itself. Some fans also had hope that perhaps Mass Effect: Andromeda would still be out in 2016 after all. Unfortunately, a blog post from BioWare now confirms the delay, with the developer saying that it’s “excited to be introducing new features and ways you can enjoy a Mass Effect game.”
