Leave it up to developers talking freely at GDC to spark a bit of hope to the masses that expected more love interests in this year's big RPG, Mass Effects 2 or last year's Dragon Age: Origins. Apparently when interviewing Greg Zeschuk and Ray Muzyka from Bioware last week at GDC, Kotaku reporter Stephen Totilo apparently stumbled upon some DLC ideas that are currently being kicked around for Bioware games, one of which could be a possible "romance pack" of sorts for their games.
The conversation arrived at this revelation after Greg mentioned that if players really asked for new missions using the new DLC vehicle, the Hammerhead, that they might make more by means of DLC. Part in jest, the comment was made that since a vocal part of the community seems to have wanted more romance options available to Shepard in the game, then maybe they should also work on that too. Greg and Ray's thoughts on the issue were thus:
"You know, It's possible," he said. Mentioning a character from Dragon Age, he suggested there could be a "Take Leliana on a date pack."
"That is a pretty good idea," Muzyka chimed in, sounding as if this was the first he'd heard of it.
"I've mentioned it to the guys," Zeschuk told me and Muzyka. "And maybe we will."
So there you have it. Granted, the conversation didn't really involve the possible inclusion of more LGBT relationship opportunities in the content, but I think we can all agree that there is a portion of the fan base that would be very pleased if they did include such content. I guess fans can hope, and that's about all we'll be able to do for a while, since it seems as though if they were to make the content, it hasn't even started on yet.
