With the news of the Mass Effect: Andromeda release date being delayed from its former release date late in 2016 and back to the first quarter of 2017, disappointment spread through the Mass Effect fanbase.

Now, we’ve gotten confirmation that the game will be releasing sometime early in 2017 for Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Mass Effect 3, the last game that showed the story of Commander Shepard, had a similar situation happen to it during its own development; it was originally going to be released in 2011, but was later delayed to be released in March of 2012.

This year has, so far, unfortunately had many other highly anticipated games in the same situation, such as Platinum Games’s upcoming Triple A game Scalebound, Mega Man-like indie game Mighty Number 9, the upcoming Legend of Zelda game, and Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst.

Thankfully one of them, Guerrilla Games’s Horizon Zero Dawn, has been said to not be delayed, and will continue its path to release sometime this year.

We won’t get much more info about Mass Effect Andromeda until the 2016 EA PLAY conference this June, and we may get even more information about it when E3 begins pretty much immediately after.

The game has been steadily building anticipation ever since announcement, especially due to what we’ve seen through trailers. These include a new land vehicle like the Mako in Mass Effect 1, having jetpacks, and a few shots of party members including a human woman and a krogan.

While we don’t have a concrete Mass Effect: Andromeda release date yet, hopefully by the time June is over we’ll have something more concrete than Q1 of 2017. In the meantime, I personally can’t wait to explore an entirely new galaxy with an entirely new and distinct cast of characters.

Personally, in addition to the krogan I really hope we have another turian (even though no one can replace Garrus.)
