BioWare pushes back Mass Effect Andromeda release to 20170 Comments
The loyalty for BioWare games is almost unprecedented in the gaming world, ranking right up there with titles from the likes of Bethesda, Blizzard, and a handful of other studios that seem to know exactly what their fans like. Those types will likely be a little bit disappointed with this latest news, as BioWare have announced that the release of Mass Effect Andromeda, the fourth game in the highly-praised RPG series, has been delayed into the early parts of 2017.
This news comes through a blog post made to the Mass Effect website, where BioWare stated the game has been pushed back "to make sure we deliver everything the game can and should be." This move may not be much of a surprise to those who follow gaming news closely, as an EA executive projected back in March that the game would be shipping in the fourth quarter of the fiscal year, which means the release date would fall between January and March of 2017.
Mass Effect fans won't be in a total drought with news of the oncoming title, however, as BioWare general manager Aaryn Flynn has stated that Andromeda will be shown off at the EA Play Event set to take place between June 12 and June 14 in Los Angeles and on June 12 in London. And it's worth remembering that the game is a BioWare title now in its fourth year of development, so chances of Mass Effect fans being disappointed are likely slim.
