Mass Effect: Andromeda will no longer release during holiday 2016 as planned, according to an EA executive.
During an interview at a recent business summit, EA chief financial officer Blake Jorgensen revealed that the title will be released during the company’s “Q4” period. EA’s financial year runs from April 1st – March 31st, in which Q4 translates to sometime between January 1st and March 31st.
“We have all our sports games, we have Mirror’s Edge, a runner game coming out in the first quarter, and then we have Mass Effect, which is a sci-fi action game, in our fourth quarter. So big year ahead and we’re pretty excited,” Jorgensen said.
Elsewhere in the interview, Jorgensen did mention a few other EA titles that are in the works.
“Yeah we’ve got a great year ahead. For the first time I’m trying to dampen down Wall Street expectations, which is a good position to be in. We’ve got our Battlefield first-person shooter coming in the third quarter, and our third party title that Respawn built… it’s called Titanfall… it’s the second title they brought out under that brand,” he said. “Both those are first-person shooter and will be targeted around both fast action-driven shooter market as well as the strategy driven market in the quarter.”
