Crytek producer defends Mass Effect 3 Extended Cut decision
In an interview with CVG, Crytek and Crysis 3 producer Mike Read has defended Bioware’s decision of releasing the Mass Effect 3 Extended Cut DLC after widepsread complaints about the game’s original endings.
Read stated: “BioWare’s in a bit of an interesting position, as opposed to us with the Crysis story, which is a very linear thing – we want to tell a story from start to finish, and the interactive pieces we’re making are the action sequences
“I’m a little bit of the belief that when a game comes out, and there’s a number of developers that I’m going to leave unnamed who have done very good jobs of this, that have put games out and the game isn’t really theirs any more, it’s owned by the community.
He added: “I back BioWare on what they did. I think it’s an understatement to say people were very vocal, but I think Casey [Hudson, executive producer for Mass Effect 3] made the right decision in coming back and delivering something. It did get mixed receptions as to what it was, but I think overall it was a good choice.”
