The controversy surrounding Mass Effect 3‘s ending has hit boiling point among fans, with many left unsatisfied by the epic’s closing moments.
But developer BioWare wants players to know that they’re listening to what everyone has to say, happy or otherwise. Chris Priestly from the community team recently took to the game’s official forums to say as much.
“We appreciate everyone’s feedback about Mass Effect 3 and want you to know that we are listening,” Priestly wrote. “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.”
BioWare has admirably stood by its less popular choices in the past – to this day they the developer still defends Dragon Age II, a game that didn’t hit home with most fans. Will this current situation, that has placed a lot of pressure on the team, be any different? Should it be?
