It all started when members of the Bioware Social Network forum stumbled upon an unusual Facebook post by Austrian "company" Sinclair Networks: "This news saddens us to say, but it was made official after a meeting this week that there will be no story DLC for Mass Effect: Andromeda from us".
Speaking with three sources familiar with BioWare's plans, Kotaku has found out that single-player DLC just isn't in the cards for Andromeda. Some were good, like Lair of the Shadow Broker, and some were not so good, like Mass Effect 3's Citadel.
Rumors have recently been circulating that Mass Effect: Andromeda will not be getting any single-player DLC, and while a major source of those was previously debunked, Kotaku has now confirmed through various sources that the fake rumors unfortunately did guess correctly.
Mass Effect Andromeda launched earlier this year with mixed reception from both players and critics.
It's disappointing, but the really frustrating thing for Mass Effect fans right now is that BioWare and EA still refuse to talk about it.
Andromeda Producer Fernando Melo asserted that BioWare crafts its own DLC, and he suggested that Sinclair Networks is not a real company. The information comes from a now deleted post on Facebook by Sinclair Networks.
This news isn't surprising now, as horror story after horror story has emerged about Andromeda's development cycle, but it does mark a first for the series.
If the results of Reddit's investigations weren't quite enough to convince concerned Mass Effect fans of the rumours' falsity, however, then word from the BioWare team itself should have been.
