Electronic Arts revealed that a trio of high-profile sequels — Titanfall 2Mass Effect: Andromeda, and a new Battlefield game — are on track to hit store shelves by the end of the company’s next fiscal year, which ends March 31, 2017.

EA CEO Andrew Wilson confirmed the existence of all three of the upcoming titles during the publisher’s quarterly earnings call for the final months of 2015. (Technically, October-December, 2015 is the third quarter of the company’s 2016 financial year. Weird, right?) More specifically, Wilson said that the next entry in the Battlefield series will be released during the 2016 holiday season, and suggested that the next Mass Effect would be released “later in the fiscal year.”

“Looking ahead to FY2017 … an all new Battlefield game from DICE will arrive in time for the holidays,” Wilson said. “We are excited to have a new Titanfall experience coming from our friends at Respawn, and of course Mass Effect: Andromeda from the team at BioWare will launch later in the fiscal year.”

EA said Mass Effect: Andromeda, a new story kicking off a new post-Shepard phase in the Mass Effect series, would come out during the 2016 holiday season when the game was announced at E3 2015.

Titanfall developer Respawn Entertainment confirmed it would collaborate with Electronic Arts on a Titanfall sequel back in March, 2015, about a year after the game’s release. While Respawn developed the original as an Xbox One exclusive, Respawn CEO Vince Zampella said the upcoming game will launch on Xbox One, PS4, and PC.

Wilson’s announcement marked the first official mention of a 2016 entry for the Battlefield franchise, though word of a new game in the mostly annualized franchise — Battlefield: Hardline was pushed back from October, 2014 to March 17, 2015 — was expected; if not during this call, than later this year.
