Mass Effect Andromeda, the long-awaited fourth game in the acclaimed science fiction RPG series, has been delayed to release in "early 2017," BioWare confirmed.
In a blog published in the official Mass Effect website, the developer said the delay of the release date was necessary "to make sure we deliver everything the game can be and should be".
BioWare also revealed that Mass Effect Andromeda would be showcased at the EA Play conference on Sunday June 12, days ahead of E3.
Last month, some footage from the game were leaked, and they show some stunning environments that fans will love.
When teased at E3 last year, Mass Effect Andromeda was revealed to launch in 2016, but the possible delay to its release was expected ever since March this year, when an EA executive suggested the project was set to ship in fiscal Q4, which runs between January and March 2017.
