According to EA, Mass Effect: Andromeda is still slated to release this fiscal year, which means that it's on course to launch by the end of March 2017. When you stop and think about it, that's not too far away, is it?

Don't shoot your hype into orbit just yet, though, as the publisher has revealed that it's certainly not against delaying the sci-fi romp again if necessary. "We are willing to make moves in launch dates if we feel it's necessary to deliver the right player experience," EA CFO Blake Jorgensen said during the company's latest earnings call. As for how long another delay could be, Jorgensen says it could be anywhere from just a week to "three or four or five months". Excited fans better hope that BioWare's got it right, then.

Of course, with N7 Day - that's the 7th November for those who don't care for Mass Effect holidays - less than a week away now, we'll no doubt be seeing more of Andromeda in the very near future.
