BioWare took player feedback to heart for Mass Effect 2, creating a more streamlined shooter-RPG, and while the studio is promising to listen just as closely as Mass Effect 3 gears up, they're also expecting gameplay changes for the final installment in the trilogy won't be nearly as drastic.
"There will definitely be things that we tweak and modify but in some ways," said CEO and general manager Ray Muzyka to UGO. "I think Mass 2 was closer to the original vision we had anyway. Mass 1 was more in the traditional BioWare game sense where Mass 2 was a bit more evolved game. I don't think Mass 3 will be as revolutionary when we really streamlined the experience, but what we're going to do is refine it and make it even better."
That said, even BioWare admits it might be too early to make that call.
"It's all on player feedback honestly I think," added VP and creative officer Greg Zeschuck. "We are still gathering that."
