Rumors on the cancellation of a planned story DLC for Mass Effect: Andromeda started from a Facebook post by an Austrian studio named Sinclair Networks. The source of this was a now-deleted Facebook post (archived image) from a company called Sinclair Networks, which claimed it was working on single-player story-based DLC for Andromeda until the project was killed. This might be due to the polarizing reception the game received when it first launched. This normally would have been cause for a sigh of relief since BioWare has a good track record with Mass Effect expansions and many were anticipating one in Andromeda, however the situation isn't so simple. "For the moment the Mass Effect series will be on ice until BioWare can decide which direction the franchise will go".
The Mass Effect series' future has been up in the air ever since Electronic Arts made a decision to restructure Mass Effect: Andromeda developer BioWare Montreal, but now we know that we won't be getting any additional single-player content from the series any time soon.
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.
" ".over the past few weeks I've confirmed the news with three sources familiar with the company's plans, all of whom spoke anonymously so as not to jeopardize their careers. "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", wrote producer Fernando Melo.
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.
