Andromeda's Story DLC Cancellation Has Been Denied by BioWare

MassEffect

"This news saddens us to say, but it was made official after a meeting this week that there will be no story DLC for Mass Effect Andromeda", a now deleted (and undoubtedly very suspect) post captured by Critical Hit said. A report from Kotaku confirms that there will be no single-player DLC for Andromeda. The Mass Effect game series is one of the best-loved in the entire gaming world, so it was understandable when its hardcore fans rebuked Andromeda for its mediocre graphics, poor choice of characters and overall boring and confusing missions.

BioWare has not publicly talked about its plans for the future of Mass Effect and did not respond to Kotaku's multiple requests for comment over the past two weeks.

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. This is disappointing but not exactly surprising, considering the downsizing of BioWare Montreal. Despite Andromeda perhaps not living up to expectations, it's a bit saddening to see the series potentially end on a down note. The chilly reception to Andromeda led the company to transfer BioWare Montreal's employees to other projects, including Star Wars Battlefront II, Anthem, and the next Dragon Age.

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.

Producer Mike Gamble simply said on Twitter, "Never heard of Sinclair Networks". It's unfortunate for sure, as expanded story content in the past has been something fans have looked forward to, especially in the case of Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3.
