BioWare working on “initiatives” to bring closure to Mass Effect 3′s ending
Developer reasserts that they are listening to feedback.
In a slightly compunctious statement, BioWare’s Ray Muzyka has addressed the controversy surrounding Mass Effect 3′s ending.
While the developer has not, clearly, promised new content that would improve upon the game’s ending, a number of “initiatives” are in the works that will provide “more clarity for those seeking further closure to their journey.” BioWare will release more info about it in April.
“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,” he said.
Muyzka also reasserted that they are listening to feedback from fans, but only those that constructive in their approach.
“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,” he added.
“Some of the criticism that has been delivered in the heat of passion by our most ardent fans, even if founded on valid principles, such as seeking more clarity to questions or looking for more closure, for example – has unfortunately become destructive rather than constructive. We listen and will respond to constructive criticism, but much as we will not tolerate individual attacks on our team members, we will not support or respond to destructive commentary.”
