Electronic Arts CEO Andrew Wilson shared during an earnings call today that he’s very pleased with Mass Effect: Andromeda, despite the mixed reviews the game received. Wilson also revealed that he would have liked reviews to have been better, but was happy BioWare created a title that many gamers enjoyed and liked.

Wilson described the passion both he and the development team have for Mass Effect: Andromeda, and elaborated on how many players found exactly what they wanted in the game. Wilson said:

“Mass Effect [Andromeda] is an interesting title; it was in development for a really long time and represented a lot of the great things that BioWare is known for: story, size, depth, breadth, imagination. And while overall the aggregate review scores were lower than we would have liked, we did have over 100 reviewers score the game at 80 or higher. So it represents a fanbase that’s very passionate, that’s looking for very particular things, and many players found exactly what they’re looking for, and some players did not.”

Many of the criticisms for Mass Effect: Andromeda centered on the lifeless faces and funky character animations that were a part of the game when it first launched. Fortunately, BioWare was able to make some quick adjustments that fixed many of the complaints, but some players still have a few frustrations with the game.

That said, Mass Effect Andromeda was one of the best selling games in March, coming in right behind Ghost Recon: Wildlands and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. That kind of success is hard to ignore.

While the initial reviews were mediocre for Mass Effect: Andromeda, EA and BioWare seem confident the game will continue to do well. BioWare is currently working on a patch that will correct addition issues and bugs in the game, including additional fixes to the character model and movement issues still plaguing the game.

During the earnings call, Wilson reminded gamers that BioWare will continue to support Mass Effect: Andromeda’s multiplayer with new content, and said that overall he is very happy with “how BioWare is treating Mass Effect.”

Mass Effect: Andromeda is currently available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
