All Future Mass Effect: Andromeda DLC Is Cancelled

Today Kotaku says that it has confirmed with three separate sources that the news of cancelled single-player DLC is accurate.

This will be a drastic departure for the long-running sci-fi series.

Fans of Mass Effect: Andromeda have been on a roller coaster of emotions for the last two days over news about future expansions with single-player content for the game. Although a small team remains in place to work on Mass Effect: Andromeda's multiplayer and patch support (which isn't done yet), most of BioWare Montreal has moved on.

You can read the full report at the link above. Despite Andromeda perhaps not living up to expectations, it's a bit saddening to see the series potentially end on a down note.

There was a lot of hype and hope riding on BioWare's Mass Effect: Andromeda, given how popular the original trilogy was.

Majority of the employees there were distributed to other projects following the "chilly reception" for "Mass Effect: Andromeda", as Schreier put it. This is disappointing but not exactly surprising, considering the downsizing of BioWare Montreal. 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.

Sinclair Networks, the company which provides network solutions for a range of different developers, took to facebook and posted about the cancellation of Andromeda story DLC.

Sinclair Networks was later deemed as fraudulent.

Michael Gamble and Fernando Melo, producers of the title, reported on Twitter that everything was a hoax and that the company which had published the information was false.

The future for Mass Effect, however, looks dismal.
