Leaked Information May Cause BioWare to Alter Mass Effect 3's Story

Mass Effect 3Talk about a company that takes their games really seriously. In a recent press release from BioWare regarding the upcoming, and highly anticipated, third (and, unfortunately, final) installment to the Mass Effect series, Mass Effect 3, the company has confirmed that the story line for Mass Effect 3 may change in response to fan feedback. That's right, following a mistakenly-released beta that led to some leaked story files, co0founder of BioWare Dr. Ray Muzyka has stated that the development team is actively paying attention to input from fans.

According to BioWare co-founder Dr. Ray Muzyka, "We listen to our fans all the time. We listen to them on the forums, their feedback from stories. We're regarding it all. If we can get ideas out of it, that will make the game better, sure. We're not adverse to taking feedback. That's part of our core values, is humility. Any time we get a good idea from fans... they're our audience. They keep us in business."

In addition to that, Dr. Muzyka said that the leak actually had a positive effect overall due to the fact that it led to more interest in the game as fans discussed the new content. Regardless, the development team did feel the effects of an unfinished game making its way into the hands of the fans.

"It's hard for the team when they see their work revealed in an early form like that. It was a pre-release demo. The script was certainly not intended to be released in that form and that early," Dr. Muzyka added. "But they're going to get through it because they're a strong group. They really care about delivering a great game to the fans. They're committed to making this the best Mass Effect."

To top it all off, Dr. Muzyka added that he hopes fans will not read the leaked information and also warns that it will affect their experience when playing the game. "Don't spoil the story. The fun of the story is uncovering things and exploring and finding new points to adventure in. I hope they don't lose that joy of discovery." Unfortunately, fans will have to wait until March 6, 2012 before they can get their hands on the final version of the game, though a demo is planned for this coming January.

Between Mass Effect 3 and Star Wars: The Old Republic, it appears as if BioWare is going to have their hands full for the next four months. But even though the coming times will be hectic, BioWare's wallet will just get fatter.
