Mass Effect: Andromeda‘s 1.10 update will be the last for the game’s single-player, BioWare has announced.

In a blog post on the game’s official site, the developer stated that 1.10 “was the final update for Mass Effect: Andromeda” and that there are no plans for future patches for single-player or additional story content.

However, support for multiplayer will continue, with BioWare promising to share details of its upcoming content, including new multiplayer missions, character kits, and what’s in store for N7 Day, “in the coming weeks.”

BioWare added that it will continue the Pathfinder’s journey through new story-based APEX multiplayer missions and will tell more stories about the Andromeda Galaxy,  including the fate of the quarian ark, through upcoming comics and novels.

Read the developer’s full statement below:

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.

Reports of the game’s single-player DLC being canceled surfaced back in June when a company called Sinclair Networks claimed that the DLC had been shelved due to the game’s poor performance. However, at the time, both EA and BioWare denied these claims stating that they had never heard of or worked with the company.

Mass Effect: Andromeda is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
