Even if you're completely disinterested in Mass Effect or have been doing your best to avoid spoilers, you're probably still aware that some people that have played through Mass Effect 3 are a bit miffed at the way the game finishes.
There's been a ridiculous amount of attention and analysis given to this situation and thankfully it looks like there are now hopes of an amicable end for all, as BioWare co-founder and GM Dr. Ray Muzyka has reached out to fans with a softly-worded and spoiler free letter on their official blog.
While it doesn't explicitly state what they'll be doing, the crux of Muzyka's post is that do have every intention of directly addressing the situation and are currently brainstorming as to the best way to both placate angry fans as well as retain the developer's artistic integrity.
Reading a bit more into it, he distinctly makes reference to "the current ending" which certainly hints that their intention may be to provide a new alternative option or perhaps more, for players to round out the trilogy. Given the player-directed nature of the game's narrative, it seems entirely reasonable that offering some optional alternative outcomes via a patch could achieve both of those goals.
The other key to his message is that the rampant flaming and personal attacks on BioWare staff has not helped the cause, but that they genuinely do appreciate and encourage actual constructive and well-mannered negative feedback.
