Mass Effect: Andromeda's Release Date May Have Just Been Leaked by Dark Horse
For huge sci-fi nerds like us, Mass Effect is just about the coolest video game franchise in the past decade. It's a giant space opera with everything you could ever want: alien romance, galactic drama, chest-high wall action, and a whole universe to explore. In fact, we just covered a panel at New York Comic-Con talking about the science of the games with two PhDs. Which makes it that much more exciting that we may have just found out when the new installment, Mass Effect: Andromeda, is supposed to come out.

Now, BioWare has been teasing that November 7th, N7 Day, is going to be the day of big reveals for the "next chapter" of the Mass Effect universe. But if you pay close attention to Amazon, you may have noticed that Dark Horse already has The Art of Mass Effect: Andromeda up for pre-order, with an interesting little note in the description:

Closing quote

Woops! Looking at the publication date of the book, we see that it's March 21st 2017—exactly in line with what Blake Jorgensen announced would be the Q1 release window for the game. This was after Andromeda  was pushed back from its original release date in 2016.


So, fans, the long period of calibrations is almost over—we'll probably be seeing the new world of Mass Effect unfold next March! In the meantime, you can check out the trailers for Andromeda here.
