"Content Initiatives" To Be Revealed In April
BioWare co-founder Dr. Ray Muzyka has issued an open letter to fans in order to discuss Mass Effect 3's controversial ending. While not explicitly promising a new DLC ending (as a few sites have misreported), the missive does suggest that BioWare will be taking lengths to explain some of the ending's more confusing points... as well as confirming that more Mass Effect games are definitely in the works.
You can read Muzyka's letter here, but here are some highlights. Apparently Casey Hudson is working on "content initiatives" that will help to "answer questions," based partly on fan feedback. Whether this will take the form of a new ending, continuation or even mid-campaign content that foreshadows the final few minutes of Mass Effect 3 remains to be seen. We'll know more in April.
Building on their research, Exec Producer Casey Hudson and the team are hard at work on a number of game content initiatives that will help answer the questions, providing more clarity for those seeking further closure to their journey. You’ll hear more on this in April. We’re working hard to maintain the right balance between the artistic integrity of the original story while addressing the fan feedback we’ve received. This is in addition to our existing plan to continue providing new Mass Effect content and new full games, so rest assured that your journey in the Mass Effect universe can, and will, continue.
Just as intruiging, however, is a full and frank admission that more "full" Mass Effect games are definitely in the pipeline.

We had a good old moan about Mass Effect 3's ending in our recent PWNcast... but defended BioWare's right to take their story in whatever direction they choose.
