Mirror’s Edge 2 and Mass Effect 4 Should Both Be Out By April 2016: Michael Pachter
It seems unlikely, but stranger things have happened.
Prominent industry analyst Michael Pachter has issued a forecast for incremental growth for EA over the coming year, centered chiefly in the launch of some long awaited key titles in this period, including Mass Effect 4 and Mirror’s Edge 2, by Bioware and DICE respectively.
“FY:16 is expected to feature incremental releases Mass Effect 4, Mirror’s Edge 2, a new Need For Speed game, and Star Wars: Battlefront, as well as meaningful re-orders for Battlefield Hardline, which launched in late Q4:15.” Owing to this, and owing to the company’s already strong presence on the PS4 and Xbox One, Pachter believes that it is uniquely positioned to thrive in the coming years in the next generation marketplace.
As of right now, however, this seems a bit unlikely- neither Mass Effect 4 nor mirror’s Edge 2 even have proper names yet, let alone release dates. And although we can expect to see more of both games at E3 this year, one must question whether the games will actually meet their projected launch dates, in this generation where scant few games have managed to do so so far.
