Mass Effect AndromedaBioWare General Manager Aaryn Flynn has confirmed that Mass Effect: Andromeda won’t be out until early 2017. That release window actually came to light earlier this year by way of CFO Blake Jorgensen’s address at the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media, and Telecom Conference, but now it’s official.

“We’re building the best of what we all love about Mass Effect—amazing stories, characters, and fun third-person shooter combat—and bringing them along with us on the expedition to Andromeda,” Flynn writes on the company’s website. “But we’re also excited to be introducing new features and ways you can enjoy a Mass Effect game.”

Details on how exactly that will be accomplished are predictably thin—more freedom, new worlds, allies, and enemies, and of course the power of the Frostbite engine—but playtesting is “showing us that we’re taking the game in the right direction,” he continued. “But we also know we need the right amount of time to make sure we deliver everything the game can be and should be—that’s our commitment from all of us to all of you. Because of that, Mass Effect: Andromeda will now ship in early 2017.”

An update on the state of the game will be released at the EA Play press conference on June 12, just ahead of E3.
