Mass Effect 3 launched earlier this month, receiving an overwhelmingly positive amount of critical reception from most media outlets; however, a very vocal group of gamers have made it clear that they don’t feel the same way. The protestors have been going so far as to request that BioWare actually change the game’s ending. Community manager Chris Priestly has spoken out to address this outcry, saying “we are listening.”
On the BioWare Social Network, Priestly has requested that the community remain patient while BioWare works to address these complaints, asking that those who have already finished the game not spoil it for others.
We appreciate everyone’s feedback about Mass Effect 3 and want you to know that we are listening.
Active discussions about the ending are more than welcome here, and the team will be reviewing it for feedback and responding when we can.
Please note, we want to give people time to experience the game so while we can’t get into specifics right now, we will be able to address some of your questions once more people have had time to complete the game. In the meantime, we’d like to ask that you keep the non-spoiler areas of our forums and our social media channels spoiler free.
We understand there is a lot of debate on the Mass Effect 3 ending and we will be more than happy to engage in healthy discussions once more people get to experience the game. We are listening to all of your feedback.
Considering all of the hot-headed, immature responses that many gamers have thrown BioWare’s way, it’s amazing how classy and respectful the studio is response is. While we still don’t know how they plan to address fans’ concerns, you can be sure that BioWare will do all they can to please their fans, while respecting Mass Effect 3’s artistic vision.
