Since earlier this year, we've known that Mass Effect: Andromeda won't be launching in 2016. However, in a statement on the official Mass Effect website, BioWare's general manager Aaryn Flynn has confirmed that the game will ship in "early 2017".

Okay, so it's not huge news, but at least the developer's taken the time to get the official stance out there. What's more, Flynn also mentions that there's an "update" in store for EA's not-quite-E3 press conference on the 12th June. Gameplay footage or don't bother showing up, as far as we're concerned.
