"For the moment the Mass Effect series will be on ice until BioWare can decide which direction the franchise will go".
This is according to Jason Schreier of Kotaku, who dismissed the Facebook post by a studio called Sinclair Networks that broke the news as a hoax, and confirmed through his sources that the developer is indeed not expanding the single-player experience of the game.
Recently, rumors began to fly that the story DLC planned for BioWare's Mass Effect: Andromeda had been cancelled.
Speaking with three sources familiar with BioWare's plans, Kotaku has found out that single-player DLC just isn't in the cards for Andromeda.
This would be the first game in the series not to receive any single-player content post-launch. This is definitely disturbing and disheartening news because I know many people were looking forward to exploring other parts of Andromeda.
Only a small team in BioWare Montreal remains to work on the multiplayer mode and patch support for Mass Effect: Andromeda, but most employees have been transferred to other projects such as Star Wars Battlefront II, the next Dragon Age, and Anthem.
It's unclear why BioWare has not yet talked about these plans publicly - and the company did not respond to multiple requests for comment over the past two weeks - but this will no doubt come as sad news to Mass Effect fans.
Sinclair Networks was later deemed as fraudulent.
If you're one of the millions of Mass Effect fans that were yearning at the chance to play some additional content, you're unfortunately in for a rude awakening.
