It’s no secret Mass Effect: Andromeda has copped flak over the questionable quality of its character animations. If you were hoping the issues would be fixed by a miraculous release day patch, well, prepare to be disappointed.
The game’s lead designer, Ian Frazier, responded to a question on Twitter regarding BioWare’s patch plans. His answer isn’t unsurprising.
@JohnCharling At day 1? No, that ship has sailed. We'll have more patches later on, but exactly what goes into them is still in discussion.

In fact, the “day one” patch has been and gone.

I think it’s safe to say that addressing the perceived quality issues will take more than pressing a big button labelled “FIX”. Considering how heavy the Mass Effect games are when it comes to character animations, it could easily be weeks, perhaps longer, before BioWare has an official stance on the matter, let alone a patch.
