Next Dragon Age Dropping Multiplayer: Report

A story on Bloomberg states that Electronic Arts is changing course on BioWare's upcoming Dragon Age game. It says "people familiar with the matter" reveal all multiplayer content is being removed from the next game in the series, which was previously planning on having a significant multiplayer component. The unconfirmed report says this decision was influenced by the success of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and the failure of the Anthem:
The diverging trajectories of two recent games changed the minds of Wilson and other executives at EA, according to the people. One was Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, a single-player game released in November 2019 that won critical acclaim and outperformed EA’s sales expectations, reaching more than 10 million players in its first four months. The second was BioWare’s Anthem, a multiplayer game that was widely panned when it launched. The games showed that single-player games could still be lucrative and that BioWare, traditionally known for its single-player, role-playing games, might be better off returning to its roots. A spokesman for EA declined to comment.

Mass Effect 3 was really fun. DA:I was.. interesting (MP) at times. Kinda niche. But they totally fucked over ME: Andromeda which had some fantastic potential with its fun gameplay. Just totally dropped the ball and went home on that one.

Probably for the best, unfortunately, that they avoid it. They lootbox the shit out of those games. I can't forgive them for ME:A though. I was so hyped, bought the deluxe edition, etc... They fucked me and many other people over.

But... to be harshly honest...
..the only one who really fucked you and all consumers over was yourself by buying into Deluxe Editions.
