question about a potential playable male character?

Will you guys be adding a potential playable male character down the road in an upcoming patch or as a free dlc option?

Honestly doubt it. Wouldn't be overly difficult sure, but at the same time outside of a couple people expressing a desire for an alternative (this would be about the 3rd or 4th suggestion for such I've seen) there isn't much reason to go through said effort.
In the end it would be a couple changes to dialogue, starmail and hobson notes, alongside another character model which you won't see often anyways. Little reason for or against the process, when they could instead focus such time/resources towards something more impactful.

I could see it as being useful as well as creating a custom beatrix or male character if they ever add multiplayer into the game. At the least as a possible trade option. To trade with real people in addition to npcs.

And this is where other things come into play. On one hand the trading with other players is a nice idea and all, but it can ruin gameplay a little bit in progression depending on how they set up the trade system. Beyond that, trades have grown to actually be a part of unlocking areas of the game (so flooding this with other trade options can clog up someone's progression rather that accelate it a bit (which is also quite possible))

Multiplayer in general has a number of issues as well, ranging from behind the scenes coding needing to be fixed, to syncing, to the literal story of the game needing be changed a bit (the main theme of the main story working in stark contrast to the concept), to the fact the devs have expressed that they have no intention to add multiplayer.
