Rumor: No Single-Player DLC for MEA

03 July 2017

In April, as we reported, BioWare scaled down its Montreal studio, whose staff had developed Mass Effect: Andromeda with help from BioWare's other studios in Edmonton and Austin.

However like we said, EA has since rubbished those rumors and in a statement they have since released, "We've never worked with Sinclair Networks and they had nothing to do with the development of Mass Effect: Andromeda".

While this isn't official confirmation of the DLC's nature, it certainly means that Bioware isn't done with Mass Effect: Andromeda.

There were rumors back in May that the series had been put on indefinite hold and Bioware employees transferred to new projects. This leaves a "skeleton crew" that is working on basic patches and multiplayer DLC with no one left over for any type of single-player content, according to sources.

There's general agreement that a revenue package will include raising the personal income tax rate from 3.75 to 5 percent. But Illinois' stalemate has been unprecedented since it reached a full year.

With single-player DLC out of the question, it comes as no surprise that a sequel for "Mass Effect: Andromeda" is also no longer planned since there is not enough manpower to make that happen.

To add insult to the injury, BioWare included dangling plot threads in "Mass Effect: Andromeda" that gamers expected to be explained in full in future DLCs. This is disappointing but not exactly surprising, considering the downsizing of BioWare Montreal.

However, there is reportedly no team dedicated to bringing new Mass Effect Andromeda DLC to the game. "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", producer Fernando Melo said on Twitter. But I wanted to be more confident, so 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 jeopardise their careers.
