"Sorry, we won't have [a multiplayer technical test]," producer Fernando Melo said on Twitter. "I know many were looking forward to it (as were we). Long story but [it is the] right decision for how close we are to [going] live."

According to Melo, the game has seen 'extensive' testing so far.

"[Mass Effect: Andromeda multiplayer] has had the most [extensive] user testing we've ever done," continued Melo, referring to the previous closed alpha for Andromeda that was on PS4 and Xbox One.

Looking to clear up any worries the cancellation could bring, Melo detailed that the multiplayer is "very alive" and "awesome." It was also confirmed that multiplayer and the game will be available on EA and Origin Access ahead of launch.

As far as we know, Andromeda's multiplayer will utilize strike missions and have vault raidsHDR support has been confirmed, as well as the omission of a season pass.

Mass Effect: Andromeda releases on March 21st for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
