Andromeda Will Not Receive Single-Player DLC

MassEffect Mass Effect: Andromeda's Story DLC Cancellation Has Been Denied by BioWare

BioWare is not working on Mass Effect: Andromeda story DLC and has shelved plans for a sequel, Kotaku sources say. After lukewarm reviews when the game first came out, it appears that much of the staff that had worked on the game has been moved to other studios and projects.

While that report may have proven to be a hoax, another has arrived which seems to have all but confirmed the end for Mass Effect Andromeda DLC.

This will be a drastic departure for the long-running sci-fi series. While it's nearly traditional to see post-release content launched for Mass Effect games, it appears that Andromeda is going to break the cycle.

The excitement for such DLC was much bigger due to the fact that BioWare has put out excellent single-player content for previous "Mass Effect" games particularly "Lair of the Shadow Broker" and "Citadel" for the second and third installments of the trilogy, respectively.

However, there is reportedly no team dedicated to bringing new Mass Effect Andromeda DLC to the game.

"There are few people left at BioWare Montreal who could even work on it", Schreier explains.

Speaking with three sources familiar with BioWare's plans, Kotaku has found out that single-player DLC just isn't in the cards for Andromeda. Of course, Bioware could still change its mind or make new plans. The information comes from a now deleted post on Facebook by Sinclair Networks. Several BioWare employees later wrote on Twitter that they had never heard of this company.

Andromeda Producer Fernando Melo asserted that BioWare crafts its own DLC, and he suggested that Sinclair Networks is not a real company.

The future for Mass Effect, however, looks dismal.
