Jennifer Hale Hasn’t Been Called In For New Mass Effect 3 Ending. Yet.
The whole world knows that after several weeks of increasing dissatisfaction, BioWare relented and decided they’re going to do… something to fix that ending. That statement promises ‘clarity’ and ‘closure, Now it’s April, but so far BioWare hasn’t offered any further comment on the matter. But if you’re dying to know what’s happening behind the scenes, better not ask Femshep voice actress Jennifer Hale. She hasn’t heard anything either.
Yep, if BioWare has plans, they haven’t called the voice actors for any additional work, at least not yet. That was confirmed in an interview on Tuesday in which she also offered her first comments on the end of Mass Effect 3. “I was surprised about the level of passion about the ending, But there’s something really great about that, too,” she said. “It says people are invested and they really care and they don’t want to let go, which is awesome because I don’t, either.”
But that doesn’t mean she’s agitating for a new ending. “I have mixed feelings… I really respect the team and what they did and how hard they worked. And endings are hard!”, she said. “They’re cutting new ground; the players are so involved in this game that to come up with an ending to something everyone’s got their hand in is a huge challenge.
“So,” she continued, “maybe it’s going to take a little work to get everything sorted in a way that’s going to make everybody happy.” Good point. If BioWare is taking their time, hopefully it’s because they’re putting the right amount of effort into things, rather than simply hoping it’ll blow over. We’re fine waiting, we just wish they’d hurry up and let us know what’s planned. And if they still need help? Don’t worry, we have plenty of advice.
