Mass Effect 3 Ending Petition Raises $80K

The Retake Mass Effect petition has ended. The group raised an impressive $80,000 in less than two weeks.

The petition began last week, and raised $40,000 in just over a day. "The very idea that we would even be able to reach that goal was a fever dream only a week ago," the group said. "I don't believe anyone can or should consider this effort to have been anything but spectacularly successful."

Earlier this week, BioWare's Dr. Ray Muzyka addressed the concerns of some fans saying the studio was looking to release additional game content that would offer clarity to the game's ending.

"As evidenced by the statement from Dr. Myzuka yesterday, we have made our voices heard. Those of you here have taken special care to be heard in a polite, positive manner, and I believe that this is a major contributor to that success."

The money will be donated to Child's Play, a charity organization that provides video games to children in hospitals.
