Mass Effect 3 story might receive revisions based on feedback following script leak

Wednesday, 16th November 2011 19:33 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Bioware is considering changing the script to Mass Effect 3 around a bit based on feedback received after a copy of the storyline leaked earlier in the month.

Speaking with Eurogamer, co-founder Ray Muzyka said the team was initially gutted over the leak, but have bounced back and moved on from the incident.

“It was disappointing for them, yeah,” he said of the Mass Effect 3 team. “They’re moving on. They’re making a great game. The script, frankly, has changed a little bit from what was released, too. But yeah, it’s tough when you see your work displayed. You realise only a small number of people are probably going to look at those spoilers in advance.

“It is hard on a team when they see their work revealed in an early form like that. 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.”

He went on to say it’s easy to take leaks out of context, especially when the studio is constantly tweaking things as development progresses.

Mass Effect 3 is set for release on March 6 in the US and March 9 in Europe on PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.

    Yeah..that sucks…who wants to read what happens in a game month’s before they play it…it just ruins the game in my opinion, especially a game that revolves so much around the narrative as Mass Effect does

    @1 – I don’t understand it either. I just hope ME 3 is great and ties everything up nicely. I haven’t read about any of the leaked story and I don’t want to know.

    Maybe I’m missing something here, but the headline seems to be saying something very different from what’s in the article. I see nothing about him saying they’re actually going to make changes based on feedback from the leak. Is that really what he said? Because the quotes in this story right now say no such thing.

    So… A huge team of established storytellers, plot developers and producers are going to take the rantings, moanings and criticisms of a bunch of Internet nerds who had early access to a leaked plot on board?!

    The game is out in a few months and is almost 100% final gold by now. This, my friends, is bullshit.

    It insinuates the script has changed “a little bit”… What that means however is not alluded too…

    It’s a non news story to be honest.
