Mass Effect: Andromeda Single-Player DLC Cancelled, Sequel Shelved According to New Report

A planned sequel has also been shelved

According to a new report, BioWare has cancelled plans for any single-player DLC for Mass Effect: Andromeda.

A Kotaku news report published today claims sources familiar with BioWare's plans confirmed Mass Effect: Andromeda will not be getting single-player, post-launch DLC. This news falls in-line with previous reports that Mass Effect: Andromeda studio BioWare Montreal was scaled down, and that staff from BioWare Montreal have been transferred to other projects like Anthem and a new Dragon Age. This leaves only a small team currently working on Mass Effect: Andromeda content like multiplayer and patches.

The news was first circulated on Facebook by a group calling themselves "Sinclair Networks", who supposedly were working on the Mass Effect: Andromeda DLC before BioWare cancelled it. However, in a weird twist, Sinclair Networks was apparently fake and BioWare employees denied ever hearing about the company. Additionally, Mass Effect: Andromeda producer Fernando Melo also Tweeted: "While we can't talk about future yet, I can def say we build our own dlc/patches for our games and don't hire fake companies to do so."

EA also denied these rumors as false, stating that that the company has never worked with Sinclair Networks. However, EA also refused to share any news regarding Mass Effect: Andromeda at the time.

Previous Mass Effect games have received highly-regarded DLC content after launch like Mass Effect 2's "Lair of the Shadow Broker" and Mass Effect 3's "Citadel". However, the release of Mass Effect: Andromeda has been tepid at best, and unfortunately the muted response has led to these reports of cancellations for any single-player DLC, along with rumors that a potential Mass Effect: Andromeda sequel has been shelved.

According to the report, BioWare can still make a "drastic pivot" and reignite plans for a single-player DLC, but sources claim that at this point in time, DLC for Mass Effect: Andromeda is essentially cancelled.

We've reached out to BioWare for comment and will update the story accordingly.
