Bioware Denies Mass Effect Andromeda DLC Cancellation
Mass Effect Andromeda launched earlier this year with mixed reception from both players and critics. However, just recently, reports emerged that DLC for the game has been canceled following the game’s poor reception. However, Bioware has taken notice of the situation and has clarified that the report is wrong.
Game producer Fernando Melo clarified the situation through his Twitter account saying that the company claiming the cancellation of DLC for Mass Effect Andromeda is fake. “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.”
In another Twitter post, he added that he can’t talk about the future content for the game. “The internet is what it is. Doesn’t change the fact that there are things we can & cannot talk about at times, as part of a public company… however, new/future content etc is something we can’t discuss yet. Sorry.”
While Bioware is not saying much about the status of the Mass Effect franchise as a whole but, the cancellation of the DLC for Mass Effect Andromeda did not come as a surprise as previously a report suggested that EA has put the Mass Effect franchise on ICE.
According to the report, Bioware Montreal, Mass Effect Andromeda’s developer, has been turned into a support studio, however, this does not mean that there won’t be another game in Mass Effect franchise but, the studio will let the series sit for a while rather than working on the next iteration immediately.
While this statement from Bioware does not reveal the status of the DLC for the game but, it does hints that the studio is not yet done with the game.
Mass Effect Andromeda is an action-adventure RPG developed by Bioware for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
