BioWare responds to Mass Effect: Deception outcry

Changes coming to correct "errors and oversights".

BioWare isn't happy with the new Mass Effect: Deception novel either.

The Mass Effect creator offered fans its "sincerest apologies" for the canonical "errors and oversights" in the book, and said changes would be made.

"The teams at Del Rey and BioWare would like to extend our sincerest apologies to the Mass Effect fans for any errors and oversights made in the recent novel Mass Effect: Deception," BioWare's community leader Chris Priestly informed fans.


"We are currently working on a number of changes that will appear in future editions of the novel.

"We would like to thank all Mass Effect fans for their passion and dedication to this ever-growing world, and assure them that we are listening and taking this matter very seriously."

Mass Effect: Deception, released at the end of January, wasn't written by Drew Karpyshyn - author of the three previous ME books, as well as the first two ME games. Karpyshyn hasn't been involved with Mass Effect 3 due to his work on Star Wars: The Old Republic.

Mass Effect: Deception was written by journeyman sci-fi author William C. Dietz. Maybe BioWare won't complete his loyalty mission.
