Report: Mass Effect Andromeda Not Receiving Single-Player DLC

by Kimberley Wallace on Jun 30, 2017 at 01:17 PM

It looks like Mass Effect Andromeda's single-player content won't be extended with DLC like previous titles, according to a report out of Kotaku.

There was some confusion yesterday after a widely circulated Facebook post surfaced from a company called Sinclair Networks, claiming the single-player DLC it was working on for the game had been canceled. While this post was confirmed to be a hoax, Kotaku is reporting that there was never any single-player DLC planned in the first place, as the majority of people who worked on Andromeda have been moved to other projects. After talking to three anonymous sources, Kotaku confirmed last month that plans for a sequel to Andromeda have been shelved. 

Mass Effect Andromeda had a troubled launch with technical foibles and was met with mediocre reviews. It currently holds scores in the low to mid 70s on Metacritic across all its platforms. Since launch, BioWare has released patches to improve the experience, but has not stated any plans for single-player DLC.

We've reached out to EA for comment on the matter and received the following response: "We have no DLC details regarding Mass Effect: Andromeda to announce at this time. "

Our Take
Mass Effect Andromeda has had its share of struggles since its launch. Does it still have enough fanfare for single-player DLC, or has it been soured? That's a big question for BioWare, which I'm sure it's considering. BioWare does have a lot of other projects in the works, including the upcoming Anthem, so it might be better to spend resources elsewhere at this point. Time will tell what the future holds.
