    Electronic Arts showed almost no Mass Effect Andromeda gameplay during its E3 2016 briefing in June. With it also not being shown at Gamescom this week, questions have been raised about the game's status. However, EA Studios boss Patrick Soderlund said in a new interview that the game remains on schedule and there is no cause for alarm.

    The developer hasn't shown much yet because the timing isn't right, he said. Right now, EA's focus is understandably on its holiday titles like Battlefield 1 and Titanfall 2. Looking forward, you can expect to see some new Andromeda gameplay.

    "You'll get [your first look at gameplay] in the not too distant future," Soderlund said when Game Informer asked him about the lack of footage at E3 and Gamescom.

    Soderlund said he understands that gamers are hungry for Andromeda footage. Simply put, EA believes the time is not yet right to show off the game in greater detail.


    "I just came back from a short vacation and I played through the first three hours of the game," he said. "It's very playable, and there is no alarm about, 'Why aren't they showing it?' It's strictly that the game will get the right type of exposure at the right time and that we can the right voice for it. Right now we're focused on our big titles for [October through December], and when that's done, we'll shift to Mass Effect. You'll see a lot more very shortly."

    Soderlund didn't get any more specific than that as it relates to when the footage may be released. EA and BioWare typically announce some Mass Effect franchise news on November 7--N7 Day--but nothing yet has tied an Andromeda announcement to that date.

    Andromeda is slated for release between January and March of 2017. The game was originally scheduled to come out in 2016, but was delayed "to make sure [it] deliver everything the game can be and should be."

    At E3, BioWare introduced players to the game's hero, Ryder, showing off the character's female version. For more, check out GameSpot's interview with BioWare, "Mass Effect Andromeda Dev on Studio Tensions, Female Leads, and the Scars From 3's Ending."

    In other news about the Mass Effect series, EA has teased that Mass Effect remasters could happen.
