Mass Effect 3 storyline may be ‘tweaked’ following leaked plot details
Bioware co-founder Ray Muzyka has confirmed that changes to the Mass Effect 3 script may occur based on fan feedback surrounding the recently leaked script for the game. Muzyka stated in a recent interview with Eurogamer “If we can get ideas out of it that will make the game better, sure. We’re not adverse to taking feedback. Any time we get a good idea from fans…they’re our audience. They keep us in business.” Muzyka was also quick to point out that the leaked version of the script is not the final version, and that it has changed somewhat from what was released.
Muzyka went on to mention that the leak has had an effect on the team responsible for the game, saying:
“It is hard on a 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. Here it is! It’s not even out yet, but you can read through it. It’s a summary.
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”
The Bioware co-founder has also asked fans of the series to avoid any spoilers contained within the leaked script if possible.
“Don’t spoil the story. The fun of the story is uncovering things and exploring and finding new pints to adventure in. I hope they don’t lose that joy of discovery.”

It sure looks like the leak of the script has had far reaching consequences – and no wonder, given the extent of the information leaked. It was bad when the pre-release demo found its way online, but the amount of content contained in the leaked script from that demo definitely has to be one of the biggest pre-release AAA game leaks in recent history.
