Back in June, Kotaku reported that Mass Effect: Andromeda would not be receiving any single-player DLC. Though plans could of course change and nothing was officially announced at the time, BioWare has now confirmed that Andromeda’s latest update was its last, and there are no plans to patch in single-player or in-game story content.
A post on Mass Effect’s website states, “Our last update, 1.10, was the final update for Mass Effect: Andromeda. There are no planned future patches for single-player or in-game story content.”
The team says that they will continue to tell stories in the Andromeda Galaxy through upcoming comics and novels, one of which will reveal the fate of the quarian ark, a question that was teased but left unanswered in the game itself. In the coming weeks, the multiplayer team will also provide details on their ongoing support for the game’s multiplayer mode, including new multiplayer missions and character kits.
Even though Mass Effect: Andromeda did not launch in a polished state and suffered from a turbulent development cycle, it’s a shame that it will not get a chance to redeem itself anytime soon. What was once one of the most beloved series in gaming now may not even exist anymore.
The studio behind Andromeda, BioWare Montreal, was recently merged with EA Motive, who is currently working on Star Wars Battlefront II.
