I can't possibly know BioWare's full intentions, but everything
I've read and heard on the grapevine implies that the Shepard + Reaper arc is done no matter what. If fans were unhappy with the conclusion the onus is on that team
and what they made, and whatever legacy it leaves. Andromeda is very much about preserving the Mass Effect franchise without the baggage, good and bad, of the Shepard trilogy. It's all new territory from hereon out.
