Rumor: Mass Effect Andromeda Won't Be Getting Single Player DLC

Mass Effect Andromeda Story DLC Cancelled, Franchise Shelved For The Time Being, Focus On Anthem (Updated)

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

This will be a drastic departure for the long-running sci-fi series. This is definitely disturbing and disheartening news because I know many people were looking forward to exploring other parts of Andromeda.

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.

When asked by a user on Facebook for SOURCE of the information, Sinclair Networks stated that Bioware contacted them to work on DLC for Mass Effect Andromeda because they were going through downsizing. 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.

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.

The site spoke with three people familiar with BioWare's plans, but the studio has not released any official statements.

It's unclear why BioWare has not yet talked about these plans publicly - and the company did not respond to multiple requests for comment over the past two weeks - but this will no doubt come as sad news to Mass Effect fans.

Yesterday, a widely circulated Facebook post from a group claiming to be called Sinclair Networks said that it had been working on Andromeda's DLC until BioWare cancelled it.

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.
