During a presentation at the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media and Telecom Conference, Electronic Arts CFO Blake Jorgensen shared details on the launch window for this year's instalment in the first-person shooter Battlefield series, as well as Titanfall 2 and Mass Effect Andromeda.
According to Jorgensen, Respawn's title will be making its way to shelves by the end of the year along with the next Battlefield game, with the upcoming instalment in the Mass Effect franchise set to debut sometime in Q1 2017 (Q4 2016-17 financial quarter):
We've got a great year ahead... we've got our Battlefield first-person shooter game coming in the third quarter, and our third-party title that Respawn, our partner, built, it's called Titanfall, it's the second title that they brought into that brand. Both of those are first-person shooters and will be targeted around the fast, action-driven shooter market, as well as the strategy-driven market in that quarter... We have our Mirror's Edge runner game this first quarter, and then we have Mass Effect, which is a sci-fi action game, in our fourth quarter. So big year ahead and we're pretty excited.
The executive's statements are in line with what EA has mentioned in the past. As for what's on offer with the games, there's not much more information to go by, but we'll likely hear more at this year's E3 in June. What game are you guys looking forward to the most?
