Despite all the hype that surrounded "Mass Effect: Andromeda", there is very little doubt the game was a massive failure. Once one of the most anticipated titles of 2017, the game landed with a rather loud thud for a variety of reasons. Developer Bioware had thought it could use "Andromeda" to restart the series. Instead it seems likely the title is the end of the much loved franchise.

The big problem with "Andromeda" seemed to be that the story wasn't really up to par. There were also plenty of people who seemed to have a real problem with the way the graphics were presented.

Whatever the cause, both the developers and the publishers have basically signaled they were doing away with any real work on the project now that it's landed.

'Mass Effect' DLC plans to focus on multiplayer

It has been known for a while that the single player DLC that was once talked about for the fourth game in the franchise would be few and far between for the Single Player Mode. GameSpot is reporting it appears there won't be any more patches for the game either. That could be a bit of a problem for those who are wanting to play through the game but are still finding themselves running into game breaking bugs.

Bioware has long signaled they aren't going to be coming up with new content, but it was expected the single player mode would at least get some updates in order to make the game operate better.

It appears the team has decided all the attention they can afford to pay to "Andromeda" will be on the multiplayer features.

Considering the multiplayer features are not exactly considered robust, one has to wonder if the announced move is one that simply allows both Bioware and Electronic Arts to move on entirely. On the company's official website, they detailed their plans for the game moving forward.

"The game was designed to further expand on the Pathfinder's journey through this new galaxy with story-based APEX multiplayer missions and we will continue to tell stories in the Andromeda Galaxy through our upcoming comics and novels, including the fate of the Quarian Ark."

Telling the 'Mass Effect: Andromeda' story through the comic

If there was ever a signal that the franchise is effectively dead, it is the statement about using the comic for the company's storytelling. Now we'll just have to see whether or not anyone really wants to know about the story of "Mass Effect: Andromeda" if they aren't able to get a hands on look.
