Dr. Ray Muzyka, the co-founder of Bioware, has posted on the company’s official forum today, saying that fan feedback about Mass Effect 3’s ending is “incredibly painful,” but that out of respect to the fans, the Mass Effect team has decided to make changes to the game’s controversial ending.
“since the game launched, the team has been poring over everything they can find about reactions to the game – industry press, forums, Facebook, and Twitter, just to name a few. The Mass Effect team, like other teams across the BioWare Label within EA, consists of passionate people who work hard for the love of creating experiences that excite and delight our fans. I’m honored to work with them because they have the courage and strength to respond to constructive feedback.”
“Exec Producer Casey Hudson and the team are hard at work on a number of game content initiatives that will help answer the questions, providing more clarity for those seeking further closure to their journey. You’ll hear more on this in April. We’re working hard to maintain the right balance between the artistic integrity of the original story while addressing the fan feedback we’ve received. This is in addition to our existing plan to continue providing new Mass Effect content and new full games, so rest assured that your journey in the Mass Effect universe can, and will, continue.”
This may come as good news to all the fans who have been complaining about the game’s ending since its launch earlier this month. According to many, Mass Effect 3’s ending failed to give the epic saga any sense of closure.
Dr. Muzyka continued and wrote “The reaction to the release of Mass Effect 3 has been unprecedented. On one hand, some of our loyal fans are passionately expressing their displeasure about how their game concluded; we care about this feedback, and we’re planning to directly address it.”
Be sure to read the entire thing on the Bioware’s forums and be patient. As Dr. Muzyka wrote, we’ll hear more about the future of Mass Effect 3, and the series as a whole, next month.Some of our posts include links to online retail stores.
