Since the E3 2015 announcement of Bioware’s space-epic, Mass Effect Andromeda, the release dates are getting pushed further into 2017 with no signs of any new gameplay. The highly anticipated installment was speculated to make an appearance at the recent Gamescom expo in Germany. However, that did not come to pass and fans were left wanting.
In a recent interview with Game Informer, Patrick Soderlund, executive vice president of EA Studios, was asked about the award winning series, instead he referred to changing his stance on remastering past games saying :
“I can’t announce anything today, but you can expect us most likely to follow our fellow partners in Activision and other companies that have remastered games successfully.”
Since then, the remasters have even been retracted as Bioware claims they do not have the additional manpower to devote to this project. Or rather, they want to focus on the future of the series.
“We are a company that’s focused on delivering for the future,” said Moore. “We’ve got incredibly talented dev studios around the world who are focused on delivering new IP and new experiences.”
Again, not much was said of the upcoming sequel, leaving us to wonder just how far into the future the new installment looms.
Mass Effect Andromeda is expected sometime in March of 2017 with no signs of delays as of yet. The space-centric Role Playing Game will release on Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
