Mass Effect: Andromeda (opens in new tab) has plenty of problems, ranging from run-of-the-mill glitches to wonky animations (opens in new tab) to a surprising lack of male/male romance options (opens in new tab), but the developers aren't ready to jump ship. However you feel about the state of the game when it was released, the team seems to be committed to improving it. Just take a scroll down the Twitter replies (opens in new tab) of Mass Effect: Andromeda lead designer Ian S. Frazier, who seemingly hasn't slept since the game came out.
Speaking of which, Frazier's correspondence with concerned fans gives us a pretty good look at where the next set of Andromeda fixes and feature updates may lead. Take a look

@Porcelyn Can't promise anything yet, but we're currently evaluating various options for making it better.March 22, 2017
@TheDiscoEffect No promises, but I've got it on the list of things we're looking at potentially fixing/adding for character creation.March 21, 2017
@WelshWilderness It's a possibility, yes. We're looking at many different options for how to improve on the character creator right now.March 21, 2017
Improving iffy facial animations
@BlazinSB We're looking at patching lots of issues and want to strongly support the game moving forward. I can't say more just yet.March 21, 2017
Expanding male/male romance options
@vlog50 There's nothing I can share on this at this time, sorry.March 21, 2017
@vlog50 Absolutely. This is definitely not going in the trash--we take the concerns very, very seriously.March 21, 2017
@pekaboo0 @vlog50 Nope, that's game designer talk from a guy who was in a meeting on this topic a few hours ago.March 21, 2017
On good old banter bugs
@tibermoon Is the banter bug from Inquisition back? I've done the first two planets and heard none so far :(March 21, 2017
@conor546 Looks like this one's already been found and we've got a fix coming in an upcoming patch. :)March 21, 2017
On other game issues
@TormDK Not sure yet, still checking out the ramifications of such a change. Will tweet if/when I can!@kiryukazuma2788 Sorry about that! We're looking into improving subtitle legibility in a patch.March 21, 2017March 21, 2017
@justenholstein @macwalterslives @GambleMike Not sure, but it is definitely on our tracked bug list right now.March 20, 2017
That's a lengthy laundry list for the team. I wish them luck in getting through it all while still managing to sleep and/or eat every now and then. Until then, here's that big krogan softy Drack with something to cheer everyone up (early game spoilers).
I dunno what's funnier...this? Or the one about my new pet pyjak and those blasphemous rules.. @bioware @AarynFlynn @tibermoon @masseffect pic.twitter.com/yjuEvhaj1hMarch 21, 2017
