You may have been hoping to see Mass Effect Andromeda release this year but unfortunately Bioware has had to push back the release date. Whilst this delay may come as bad news to some, it is ultimately for the better and it'll ensure that when the gigantic open universe game gets a release it will be more featured packed, more fine tuned and more diverse.
Bioware announced the game delay in a new blog post. Whilst the main announcement in the blog post is about the delay, the blog also talks about the future of Mass Effect Andromeda and it's current stage in development.
Firstly, Mass Effect Andromeda has been delayed to 'early 2017.' Whether we get this in the first quarter or second quarter of 2017 hasn't been mentioned, but we highly expect it to be the first quarter.
Secondly, Bioware goes on to mention some of the things to expect from Andromeda. We have listed the highlights below.
+ More Freedom: One of our biggest ambitions is to give players an unprecedented level of freedom for a Mass Effect experience where you'll go, how you'll get there, and how you'll play.
+ New Uncharted Worlds: We're leaving the Milky Way behind and headed to Andromeda, where we'll meet new allies, confront new enemies, and explore fascinating new worlds.
+ The Next Great Mass Effect Experience: Mass Effect: Andromeda will be the first Mass Effect game for today's consoles and the first built on the Frostbite engine. We're pushing the technology to deliver visuals, story, and gameplay that have never been done in franchise history.
