Next Tie-In Novel Won't Arrive Before Summer 2018, Covers Quarian Ark -

The next Mass Effect: Andromeda tie-in novel won't arrive until a year after the game's release and subsequent "placing on ice". The book is called "Annihilation" and deals with the events on the Quarian ark, one of four that left the Milky Way heading for a new life in the Andromeda galaxy. However, as we know from the game, the Quarian ark (also carrying Hanar, Drell, Elcor and Batarian pioneers) never makes it the rendezvous. 

Discover the danger aboard the quarian ark in Mass Effect: Annihilation, an upcoming novel from Hugo Award-winning author Catherynne M. Valente. 

This official tie-in novel chronicles the journey of the Keelah Si’yah as it carries 20,000 drell, elcor, batarian, and quarian colonists to Andromeda. 

A pathogen is discovered aboard the ark after many drell are found dead in their cryo pods. As the pathogen jumps species, the ship’s systems begin to fail, making it clear this is no accident. 

Annihilation arrives in US, Canadian, and UK stores  on June 26, 2018

The announcement was made on the BioWare blog

How popular it will be remains to be seen given it is coming more than a year after the series was put on hold. Will you buy it?
