Bioware fixing thier mistakes?!

 All right, we all know about the Mass Effect 3 ending. And apparently, we've whined and cried about it so much that Bioware may be fixing or adding to the ending. Co-founder of Bioware Ray Muzyka explains.

"I believe passionately that games are an art form, and that the power of our medium flows from our audience, who are deeply involved in how the story unfolds, and who have the uncontested right to provide constructive criticism. At the same time, I also believe in and support the artistic choices made by the development team. The team and I have been thinking hard about how to best address the comments on ME3's endings from players, while still maintaining the artistic integrity of the game."

"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."

"Building on their research, 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."

So what does this mean? Will Bioware change the ending, add to it, or perhaps explain it in a sequel? I don't know! You expect me to know this stuff? Come on, I'm not a mind reader! Just cross your fingers and hope.

  1. Yep, "whine enough, and you will get what you want." XD But seriously, this is a smart decision. Obviously, a company that wants to sell more product really should try to please their fanbase... Now the waiting game begins.

    1. Or to quote ME3 "The squeaky hinge gets the oil" or it's something like that.
