Mass Effect: Andromeda Single-player Support Ends

The BioWare Blog offers an update on Mass Effect: Andromeda, saying there will be no more single-player updates for the latest installment in the sci-fi RPG series. Overwatch be warned, however, they still plan further multiplayer content, and promise more details on that in the coming weeks. Here's word:
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.

Nobody, but nobody comes close to CDPR in game support--it's not even close, CDProjekt is so far ahead. As is well known, they support their games years into the future, and as a result those games continue to bring in nice revenue streams years after they originally ship.

Disagree mucho. As much as I dislike (or am indifferent about) Blizzard and Valve but their support is second to none. They both really release patches for games years (decades even in some cases) after they came out.

CD Projekt offer decent support but have a relatively normal cycle. TW3 came out May 2015, received two full expansions and the last patch is now almost a year old (1.31 released in September 2016 and all focus is now on Cyberpunk apparently).
That's "only" about 15 months worth of support while many issues still remain (just check their forums).

There are many devs with similar support cycles like Larian Studios, inXile, Obshittian etc.
There is certainly nothing outstanding about CDP. They haven't touched the first Witcher or Witcher 2 in years either while there are quite a few other devs who bring their old games up to modern standards (like Titan Quest anniversary for example) or like Blizz and Valve release patches even for their ancient legacy stuff.

You're proof that CDP marketing is working as intended though. Release a half-finished game, fire off salvos of patches and hotfixes (to fix the patches) and make people believe that you are a developer God due to the sheer quantity of patch output.
