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.
