Mass Effect Andromeda, Bioware’s upcoming new Mass Effect installment, won’t have a season pass.

That’s what Bioware’s general manager, Aaryn Flynn, said on Twitter this weekend when asked about it. “Nope”, was Flynn’s short, but clear answer.

When asked about DLC for Andromeda in general, Bioware’s general manager said that DLC will be talked about at a later date. “We’ll talk more about that later :)”, he said.

Flynn’s answer isn’t that surprising due to the fact that no single Bioware game has had a season pass. On the other hand, almost all recent EA titles (Bioware’s parent company), were released with season passes.

The exact DLC plans for Andromeda are uncertain at this point, we’re guessing that Bioware will be releasing free multiplayer content and paid DLC for the story mode, just like they did with Dragon Age: Inquisition and Andromeda’s prequel, Mass Effect 3.

Mass Effect: Andromeda was teased by Bioware’s former executive producer back in 2012, but wasn’t officially announced until EA’s 2015 E3 press conference. The game allows players to be the “Pathfinder” in search of a new home.
