The supposed December launch date of the upcoming action role-playing video game "Mass Effect: Andromeda" has been cancelled. Both its developer BioWare and publisher Electronic Arts remain silent as to when the game will come out, but Amazon may have inadvertently spilled the beans. 

Earlier this month, Amazon listed Dark Horse Comics' tie-in art book called "The Art of Mass Effect: Andromeda." According to the listing, the art book is slated to be released on March 21, 2017.

So, what does this have to do with the game?

As reported by GameSpot, the description of the art book states that it would be released "simultaneously with the game." That being said, Amazon may have accidentally announced that the game would also be launched on the same date.

BioWare has already confirmed that an "early 2017" release is possible and now with the Amazon listing as proof, it could likely be released in March next year.

BioWare previously talked about the delay, confirming that they needed more time to make the game experience better. Along with the announcement of the delay was the announcement of new characters. There will be new male and female characters, who happen to be siblings, that will be existing in the in-game world.

Following the Amazon incident, fans are eager to know if the date is indeed true. However, as pointed out by VG247, March 21 is a likely date. This is a Tuesday and it's a day that big titles usually get released. Nonetheless, it is much better to wait for further announcements from BioWare and Electronic Arts.

If any "Mass Effect: Andromeda" announcements will be made, it will possibly be along with the new trailer of the game on Nov. 7 or N7 day — a day to celebrate the franchise.
