    The worrysome part is that those news about the studio reduction stated about future patches for the multi-player and no mentioned of patches for the single player campaign.

    The prices for Andromeda are low now, 20 or 25 bucks is the lowest I have seen on Ebay or elsewhere.

    All the negative reviews did a lot of damage

    Ouch that's sad, but I understand why. The game did first feel like it was done in a rush but with latest updates game has improved a lot.

    Would be great to see Andromeda finished though, there were hints in the end that it'll continue. With dlc's I assume.

    So it looks like there won't be any single player DLC for Andromeda.

    Not really surprised since they left a skeleton crew to work on the patches and the rest moved to help with Anthem
    If they decide to make single player DLC, it will be after Anthem is near completion.

    Atleast they update multiplayer constantly, yesterday Batarian Scrapper was introduced and also Platinum difficulty. There is no any story though how and when Batarians arrived... maybe there will be dlc which will tell us why. Just keeping my hopes up :D

    You are the most positive man in the world :D

    I've read that in these patches they are not fixing the facial animations, they are simply changing the camera angle scene so that it doesn't show the actual bad animation

    I actually bought the game code a few weeks back for 25 bucks; just waiting for a few more patches before I play the game.

    The skeleton crew that was left at Bioware Montreal has been moved to a new studio to work on a different game

    EA confirms BioWare Montreal moved to EA Motive

    so they are unofficially confirming that there will be no more patches or DLC to Andromeda
    It seems EA want's to forget about it as soon as possible

    I read somewhere that ME:A has been profitable after all but I guess the critic has been enough or they've planned to do this earlier already.

    Yeah I read about that too.
    EA has been saying that the game has been selling good but they have not released how many copies have been sold.

    Bioware has confirmed that there will be no more updates to the single-player and story of Andromeda with the skeleton crew now focusing on multi-player

    Mass Effect: Andromeda Update from the Studio

    What a bunch of balony

    This franchise didn't deserve this half-assed attempt. At least I can finish the story now.

    I am not sure I want to play the game yet.
    I was hoping they would release story related DLC based on what Flash has stated before of the game ending on a cliffhanger.
    It doesn't look like they would go back to the franchise anytime soon

    Haha, you had me at "those buffoons at EA" :lol:

    Unfortunately that wouldn't be the same feeling as playing by yourself.
    Damn EA

    Game Reactor interviewed EA Vice President Patrick Söderlund at Gamescom in which he believes the game got criticized too much.
    From his answer it seems that once they return to the franchise, it will be a reboot.
