Though Mass Effect: Andromeda is only a day away from release, it’s been under a lot of heavy fire for the animation issues in Early Access. BioWare has already stated that there won’t be any patches to fix the problem, which implies that the issue is much deeper than a simple glitch in the software matrix. Since then, some fans have gone a little overboard and begun to not only threaten BioWare, but to direct their discontent at facial animator Allie Rose Marie Leost.
It had stated previously on Leost’s Twitter profile that she was the lead animator. However, BioWare now states that this wasn’t the case at all and berates fans for the somewhat vicious attacks of late. General manager Aaryn Flynn has made it clear that some people are going too far, saying that:
“Recently, a former EA employee was misidentified as a lead member of the Mass Effect: Andromeda development team. These reports are false. We respect the opinions of our players and community, and welcome feedback on our games. But attacking individuals, regardless of their involvement in the project is never acceptable.”
Do you think the attacks were justified? Is BioWare, EA, or neither in the wrong here? Comment below and let us know.
