The initial reception to BioWare and Electronic Arts' action role-playing shooter, "Mass Effect: Andromeda," was less than stellar, to say the least. The mixed reactions that the game received led to numerous #Rumors regarding the game's developers completely abandoning any hope of releasing any additional downloadable content (DLC) for the game.

Confusing rumors

Previous reports had suggested that BioWare initially planned a slew of DLCs for the game, but due to its unenthused reception, the developer reportedly had to cancel all of it. This rumor was then extinguished by the game's producer Mike Gamble, who mentioned that there was never any planned story DLCs, to begin with.

BioWare, of course, made no such promises and the company didn't even release a Season Pass for the game, which further backed Gamble's statement.

The rumors are true

Now, a new report from Kotaku, which cited three sources "familiar with BioWare's plans," revealed that the company was indeed planning for DLCs, but it chose to abandon it due to the issues the game was facing. While the chain of events and misinformation may be confusing, it all ultimately means that "Mass Effect: Andromeda" will NOT be getting any single-player DLCs anytime soon.

Disappointing for fans

Despite continuous attempts at making them reveal their DLC plans, BioWare and EA still refuse to even discuss the topic. BioWare's Aaryn Flynn mentioned back in January that they will eventually talk about the DLCs at a later date.

The following months were met with more evasive statements from everyone involved with the project. The game itself is now more than three months old, which means that if the developers do have plans for a DLC, it would likely be already too late.

Having no DLCs will be quite strange for "Mass Effect" fans as all of the game in the original trilogy had numerous DLCs released post-launch. The lack of any DLCs has also been taken as a sign by some as a clear indication that BioWare may have already given up on the property, which means that there will likely be no sequels that will be developed for it.

"Mass Effect: Andromeda" was released back in March for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC. The fourth main entry in the "Mass Effect" series received some praise from fans and critics for its combat and visuals, but it ultimately was criticized for its various technical issues and horrible character animations. #Mass Effect Andromeda #Game Developers
