Andromeda devs say no plans for single-player DLC

While reporting that news, I had been pretty sure that Mass Effect: Andromeda wouldn't be getting single-player DLC.

This will be a drastic departure for the long-running sci-fi series.

The last pool of new content coming to the game appears to be the APEX missions launched weekly, although the most recent "Roekaar Occupation" series appears to have ended. Bioware has still not commented on the issue, but we've reached out for comment.

You can read the full report at the link above. Some of our favorite content for previous Bioware titles such as Lair of the Shadow Broker, Mass Effect 3's Citadel DLC and Dragon Age: Inquisition's Trespasser are all good, if not great, packages of content that elevate the titles that they are attached to.

Fed: Large Banks Would Remain Well-Capitalized Under Severe Stress
Fed officials will decide next week whether to approve banks' plans to pay dividends and repurchase shares. For the third year in a row, all the banks maintained capital levels above the minimum the Fed requires.

With the franchise placed on hiatus and the news of no story DLC for Mass Effect: Andromeda, the future of Mass Effect is increasingly looking like a gloomy one. This is disappointing but not exactly surprising, considering the downsizing of BioWare Montreal.

Majority of the employees there were distributed to other projects following the "chilly reception" for "Mass Effect: Andromeda", as Schreier put it. For those hearing about this for the first time, the rumors began when a studio from Austria called Sinclair Networks posted onto Facebook (which has since been deleted, but not before it was captured by Critical Hit) claiming that their contract with BioWare to produce three DLCs for Andromeda had been cancelled.

Sinclair Networks was later deemed as fraudulent.

Electronic Arts and BioWare even look like they have moved on from Mass Effect, especially with the amount of hype that it is pushing for the upcoming Anthem.
