BioWare may have not completely given up on "Mass Effect: Andromeda," with hints of a new "Quarian" Race DLC possibly coming soon. The name refers to a missing in-game race, which should somehow patch things up for the game’s shortcomings.

Suggestions of the "Quarian" race coming to "Mass Effect: Andromeda" originated from the latest APEX briefing, Eurogamer reports. It is tied up to semi-regular multiplayer events for the action-role-playing video game, where there are small lumps following the investigations to the kett and Remnant enemies. The mission would involve a Remnant observatory, its transmitted data sounding a lot like a quarian ark from the official site:

"...trying to boost the signal. Unknown if... tech seems to be helping even if we don't know the... back to Keelah Si'yah. ...way home."

The dig seems interesting, though most are advised to take it with a grain of salt for now. It could be a minor one, but it would be interesting if "Mass Effect: Andromeda" players will be able to get to play as the quarian race.

With that left uncertain, a potential DLC release doesn’t add up. BioWare recently announced they were putting the game on hold and would instead focus on patching up the bugs – particularly in the multiplayer niche.

Then again, the quarian race could be limited to single-player campaigns, which would technically be not covered. For now, BioWare is mum on the matter.

In all, BioWare is still dealing with a controversial game that has paled to previous "Mass Effect" installments. Most were bewildered on how BioWare opted for a new instalment rather than another chapter of "Mass Effect 3."

Creative Director Mac Walters would eventually explain that they simply wanted the trilogy to end so they could start fresh, Attack of the Fan Boy reports. The developers wanted something new, thus the Andromeda Galaxy replaced the old Milky Way.

While the intent was good, there were hiccups the BioWare team failed to address. Despite the setback, the company is expected to keep the "Mass Effect" IP afloat, where the team is more than likely to figure out what went wrong.

There is no timetable for that, but the potential release of a DLC for "Mass Effect: Andromeda" comes a bit of a surprise. The quarian race dish may be something the developers have planned to use, had it not for the problems that cropped up.
