BioWare has promised to discuss the controversial Mass Effect 3 ending when more have finished the game.

"We appreciate everyone's feedback about Mass Effect 3 and want you to know that we are listening," Chris Priestly, BioWare's community coordinator, wrote on the official forum.

"Active discussions about the ending are more than welcome here, and the team will be reviewing it for feedback and responding when we can. Please note, we want to give people time to experience the game so while we can't get into specifics right now, we will be able to address some of your questions once more people have had time to complete the game. In the meantime, we'd like to ask that you keep the non-spoiler areas of our forums and our social media channels spoiler free.

"We understand there is a lot of debate on the Mass Effect 3 ending and we will be more than happy to engage in healthy discussions once more people get to experience the game. We are listening to all of your feedback."

Priestly's comments follow those made earlier this week by Mass Effect director and executive producer Casey Hudson, who explained that Mass Effect 3's "polarising" finale was necessary to get fans talking about the game.

Meanwhile, the fan petition to change the game's endings has now raised over $50,000 for charity. The Retake Mass Effect fan campaign has been appealing for funds to get the movement taken seriously by BioWare; money which it will then donate to gaming charity Child's Play.
