After appearing on an Xbox One pre-order page, Bioware's fourth Mass Effect video game now has an official release date. It turns out Mass Effect: Andromeda will be coming out 10 days earlier than what was listed on the pre-order web page, hitting retailer shelves on March 21.  

The date was confirmed in a blog post  from BioWare general manager Aaryn Flynn, who called  Andromeda the "most ambitious Mass Effect game to date," a new action-RPG filled with  "completely new stories, new characters, new planets, new species, and introducing new gameplay systems."  

Flynn went on to reveal, "Over this holiday break, developers at BioWare took home a version of the game in what we call the 'holiday build.  This is a long-standing studio tradition that goes back to the early days of the original Mass Effect. Many load up a PC or console and go home to play as much as possible at their leisure. Coming back from holiday, the feedback has been great."  

That's a very interesting revelation, primarily for the fact that no details on Andromeda were leaked despite the very serious risk of associated with physical copies of the game leaving the Bioware offices.  
Andromeda is six centuries after Mass Effect 3 and follows an N7 adventurer and a ship filled with various Alliance species in stasis pods who departed Earth after the full extent of the Reaper threat was first revealed in Mass Effect 2.
