One bit of information we have known for a while now about Mass Effect Andromeda is a three month release window, however, we might now have a bit more information thanks to a listing on Amazon. Although the listing is not for the game, but is for the book ‘The Art of Mass Effect Andromeda’ by Dark Horse Comics.
The information on the listing is what has possibly outed the date. The date for the release of the book is 21 March 2017, and the product description explains the book will release ‘simultaneously with the game’.
Originally EA planned the game to be released in 2016, they then announced the game would be delayed until the fourth quarter of their fiscal year; which covers January – March 2017. At the time EA informed the delay was due to “need[s] the right amount of time to make sure [it] deliver[s] everything the game can be and should be.”
From that announcement details about the game have been very scarce, with the only real look at the game being provided in September 2016 at the Playstation Meeting. More information could be available soon on 7 November 2016, as a new trailer will be shown on N7-Day, which celebrates the series. Maybe we might the confirmation on the release date in the information given on this date, with Bioware saying it will “officially open the doors to the next chapter of the Mass Effect universe.”
