This has nothing to do with the performance of “Mass Effect Andromeda”, as Electronic Arts emphasized in the following. The SciFi Rolling Game was comparatively critical, but according to Chief Executive Officer Andrew Wilson, the title represents many great things for which BioWare is known: story, scope, depth, size, and imagination.
In the end, ratings were lower than expected, but according to Electronic Arts, it should be noted that more than 100 reviews resulted in a score of eight or more points. The fans of the series were very passionate and some of them had found what they were looking for in the game – others did not. Electronic Arts at least seems to be convinced by the RPG.
