EA has confirmed that a new Titanfall game and Mass Effect: Andromeda are slated to launch before 31st March 2017.
When providing a rundown of its fiscal 2017 (April 2016-March 2017) heavy hitters in its latest financial report, EA offered the following statement:
"In Q1, we'll begin with the creative and innovative Mirror's Edge Catalyst from DICE launching in May. A great line-up of EA Sports titles are in development for next year, and we look forward to sharing more about these new experiences in the months ahead. An all-new Battlefield game from DICE will arrive in time for the holidays, we're excited to have a new Titanfall experience coming from our friends at Respawn - and of course, Mass Effect Andromeda from the team at BioWare will launch later in the fiscal year."
Elsewhere EA noted that Star Wars: Battlefront shipped 13m units to retailers before New Years (including over 1m copies bundled with consoles). That's not the same thing as sold to consumers mind you, but it's still a decent barometer to gauge its success. It "surpassed EA's fiscal year guidance" anyway, so that can only be a good thing for Battlefront fans.
We already knew a second Titanfall game was in the works and would be multiplatform to boot. But this is the first time we've been given any idea as to when it might be ready.
