BioWare Co-founder Ray Muzyka Addresses Dissatisfied Mass Effect 3 Fans, Promises “Content Initiatives”

It’s doubtless that the endings of Mass Effect 3 caused a stir between the fans and apparently BioWare took notice. Today co-founder Ray Muzyka posted on the BioWare blog expressing the developer’s standpoint on the issue.

While Muzyka states clearly that he considers games a form of art, and that he has the utmost respect for the creative freedom of his team, he also promises that BioWare is working on solutions that will maintain the right balance between the artistic integrity of the original story and addressing the fan feedback received.

To that end the team led by executive producer Casey Hudson is working on “content initiatives” that “will help answer the questions, providing more clarity for those seeking further closure to their journey.”

Whether this means actual new endings or not, we still don’t know, but whatever those “content initiatives” are, we’ll hear more about them in April.

Muzyka expresses the notion that BioWare will “listen and will respond to constructive criticism” but “will not support or respond to destructive commentary”, given that some of the feedback has gone the sour way.

There’s also a word for those hoping that the franchise will continue, as the developer has “existing plans to continue providing new Mass Effect content and new full games”.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market.

He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
