You won't be cooing over Krogans this Christmas, as EA Games has quietly let slip that Mass Effect Andromeda will release sometime next year instead. Speaking at the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media, and Telecom Conference, suit Blake Jorgensen mentioned that the title will release during the quarter spanning January 2017 through March 2017. It was previously expected to be a holiday game.

It's no major surprise, of course, seeing as we haven't seen a second of gameplay from the hotly anticipated space-faring sequel. It does round out a pretty bumper line-up from the Redwood-based organisation, though, with Mirror's Edge Catalyst, Battlefield 5, and Titanfall 2 all due out within the firm's current fiscal year.
