'Mass Effect: Andromeda' Rumors: DLC Incoming? Devs May Be Dropping Hints

While there are certainly gamers who were disappointed by the latest installment of the "Mass Effect" franchise, there were also those who enjoyed playing it and are now hoping that developers are planning to add to it.

Recently, rumors began to fly that the story DLC planned for BioWare's Mass Effect: Andromeda had been cancelled.

Today Kotaku says that it has confirmed with three separate sources that the news of cancelled single-player DLC is accurate. This might be due to the polarizing reception the game received when it first launched. Fans had expected a similar approach for Mass Effect: Andromeda, but mediocre reviews and animation memes have steered the series in an unfortunate new direction. Instead, team members have been moved to other projects (such as a Dragon Age sequel). However while it wasn't exactly awful, it did not live up to the hype and it seems that many gamers were a bit disappointed with it, so much so that apparently the future of the franchise has been put on hold.


Like all information of this type, it must be taken with caution and until BioWare issues an official statement we will know the actual situation of Mass Effect: Andromeda. While that Facebook post turned out to be a hoax, sources are telling Kotaku the gist of the post was correct: Mass Effect: Andromeda will not be getting any single-player DLC. But Sinclair Networks appears to be fraudulent.

The disappointment with Mass Effect: Andromeda and publisher EA putting the franchise on hiatus may not be good news for fans. Several BioWare employees later wrote on Twitter that they had never heard of this company.

Andromeda Producer Fernando Melo asserted that BioWare crafts its own DLC, and he suggested that Sinclair Networks is not a real company.
