The “Mass Effect” Franchise Is Seemingly Dead

BioWare has posted an update on the “Mass Effect” website to announce that the latest patch to its “Mass Effect: Andromeda” game, update 1.10, will be the final update for the title.

They add that “there are no planned future patches for single-player or in-game story content.” This confirms rumors that followed in the wake of the game’s disappointing release both in terms of reviews and sales, that ‘Andromeda’ will be the first game in the series to not get single-player DLC expansions.

Patches in recent months have been focused on fixing the bugs that came with the game’s launch. The game had a troubled development that saw many of the original plans chucked out and what game remaining assembled in the space of just eighteen months.

With sequel plans scrapped, and the new game being abandoned just five months after release, the series has effectively been killed. Some story-based multiplayer missions are the only thing left for fans of the franchise to look forward to. Don’t expect a return of the once great series anytime soon.
