Mass Effect 3 ending to be retooled in response to complaints

BioWare is working on "a number of game content initiatives" that will provide further clarity and closure to the controversial ending to Mass Effect 3, studio co-founder Ray Muzyka revealed in a statement today.

Citing "incredibly painful" fan feedback, BioWare co-founder Dr. Ray Muzyka says that the Mass Effect 3 team is working to answer more of the trilogy's still-open questions and provide further closure to fans.

In a statement released today, Muzyka revealed that the studio is currently working on "a number of game content initiatives" alongside their other DLC offerings to respond to criticism that the space opera trilogy's finale was unsatisfactory. BioWare will reveal more about the ending content in April.

"Our first instinct is to defend our work and point to the high ratings offered by critics," Muzyka said, "but out of respect to our fans, we need to accept the criticism and feedback with humility."

It's unclear whether the content in question will completely rewrite the oft-decried finale, as Muzyka added, "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."
