BioWare responds to 'Mass Effect 3' ending backlash
Dr. Ray Muzyka took to the BioWare blog to address something I’m sure you’ve all heard about by now. There has been an overwhelmingly negative response to the endings of _Mass Effect 3_ sparking petitions an outcries from fans.
I just finished the game just before writing this post and I’m in the minority but I didn’t really have a big problem with the ending. I won’t say much more than that but this fan backlash is definitely overblown.
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.
Many sites have taken the above quote from Dr. Ray to mean that BioWare will be completely changing the ending of the game and giving the internet cry babies exactly what they want. If you were to actually _read_, he says nothing like that. All that can be implied from Muzyka’s statement is that the Mass Effect team will be offering some explanation for the endings in some form or another down the road.
Dr. Muzyka points out in his post that _Mass Effect 3_ is a form of artistic expression and same as you can’t tell a painter how to change a work of art neither should you be able to retcon the ending to a game just by yelling at it.
