We already knew that Mass Effect: Andomeda was coming out early next year, but a pre-order listing for an art book for the game may have given us an exact release date.
The Art of Mass Effect: Andromeda is listed on Amazon (via Destructoid) as a hardcover book from Dark Horse Comics with a scheduled release of March 21, 2017. Within the description is the note that "Dark Horse will release The Art of Mass Effect: Andromeda simultaneously with the game." A listing for the book on the BioWare store still has the release as "early 2017."
The move isn't unusual as publishers usually like to capitalize on the buzz of a new game with as many products as possible, but it is a bit odd to see a release date leaked before the publisher is ready. As of this posting, the page and release date are still live for peope to see.
If you are interested in the book, it runs $39.99. We'll have to wait on more details from EA for the game itself. We do know it should look pretty good running in 4K resolution.

That's a tentative date.
I remember pre-ordering the Homeworld Remastered art book and that had a simultaneous release date with the game but ended up being release months later.
