Mass Effect: Andromeda launched with a wide variety of problems that quickly gave rise to an equally vast amounts of complaints from critics and players alike. While the developers did try to fix some of the most egregious issues, there was simply no way to get around the stilted animations and atrocious writing. A real shame since the original Mass Effect trilogy was such a joy to play, despite the somewhat disappointing ending.

Speaking of disappointment, I'm saddened to say that Mass Effect: Andromeda has just managed to reach rock bottom. According to the most recent announcement Mass Effect: Andromeda will be getting no more singleplayer updates or additional story content, even though there are gigantic cliffhangers and nasty bugs present all throughout the game. For those of you interested in finding out what happened with the Quarian Ark or other such unresolved mysteries, I'm afraid you're going to have to shuffle through the upcoming comics and novels to get any sort of closure.

The announcement message doesn't reveal much in terms of details, but if you're interested in seeing what Bioware has to say I'll leave you with the full quote:

"Since the release of Mass Effect: Andromeda, we’ve worked hard to address feedback from our community. From improving animations to expanding customization options, we looked to respond to your concerns, and build on what you loved.

With each patch, you let us know we were heading in the right direction, and we're grateful to everyone who joined us on this journey. We're proud of what we created, and we hope you enjoyed it as well.

Early in development, we decided to focus Mass Effect: Andromeda’s story on the Pathfinder, the exploration of the Andromeda galaxy, and the conflict with the Archon. 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.

Our last update, 1.10, was the final update for Mass Effect: Andromeda. There are no planned future patches for single-player or in-game story content.

In the coming weeks, our multiplayer team will provide details of their ongoing support and upcoming content, including new multiplayer missions, character kits, and what’s in store for N7 Day.

We appreciate all the millions of people who came with us to the Andromeda galaxy. We hope to see you again in the Mass Effect universe."
