If you were looking to expand your single-player story in Mass Effect Andromeda, your hopes may just have been dashed.
This will be a drastic departure for the long-running sci-fi series.
Previous Mass Effect games received single-player DLC after they were launched, so the cancellation was big news for the remaining fans of the franchise. Fernando Melo, Producer of Mass Effect Andromeda wrote on Twitter that never ever Bioware hired fake companies to do the DLC and patches for their games.
Despite this, many had this bad news coming after it was reported that BioWare has downsized its Montreal wing, which was the primary team that worked on the game. Fans had expected a similar approach for Mass Effect: Andromeda, but mediocre reviews and animation memes have steered the series in an unfortunate new direction. BioWare has traditionally released meaty, excellent downloadable content for all of its games, and Andromeda left several loose narrative threads that still need to be tied up. For those hearing about this for the first time, the rumors began when a studio from Austria called Sinclair Networks posted onto Facebook (which has since been deleted, but not before it was captured by Critical Hit) claiming that their contract with BioWare to produce three DLCs for Andromeda had been cancelled.
Electronic Arts and BioWare even look like they have moved on from Mass Effect, especially with the amount of hype that it is pushing for the upcoming Anthem.
