It has been virtually 4 years since gamers gathered a crew on the SSV Normandy SR-2 and saved the universe with Commander Shepard. A brand new Mass Impact recreation was initially scheduled for 2016, nevertheless an investor name with EA’s CFO Blake Jorgensen means that Andromeda has now slipped into 2017. In the course of the presentation, he was requested which titles the writer will probably be releasing in its “FY (fiscal yr) 2017,” to which he replied:

“We have got our Battlefield first-individual shooter recreation coming within the third quarter, and our third-social gathering title that Respawn, our companion, constructed — it is referred to as Titanfall, it is the second title they’ve introduced out underneath that model. Each of these are first-individual shooters and shall be focused at round each quick motion-pushed shooter market in addition to the technique pushed market in that quarter.

We’ve got all our sports activities video games, we’ve got our Mirror’s Edge runner recreation that is first quarter, after which we’ve got Mass Impact, which is a sci-fi motion recreation, in our fourth quarter.”
