It was a rough launch
for BioWare's highly anticipated Mass Effect: Andromeda, with the developer spending the post-launch period fixing a whole slew of character and facial animations. In a new post
the studio confirms that, "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".
Which is a shame because the story does leave things open for new adventures, plus revealing the fate of the Quarian Ark. The latter of which will be addressed in upcoming comics and novels.
Here's the full post.
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.

Which points to more multiplayer stuff coming, but that's really a consolation prize. Having put off playing Mass Effect: Andromeda until recently, this news isn't surprising. It's a decent game, but doesn't live up to the promise and spirit of the original trilogy. In fact, it feels like the sort of experience that would have benefited greatly from an extra year in development.
