BioWare senior creative director Mike Laidlaw announced today on Twitter that he is leaving the studio after 14 years. In 2015, Dragon Age: Inquisition won two NAVGTR Awards, Game of the Year and Game Design, Franchise, and was nominated for Game, Franchise Role Playing.
"It's with a mix of emotions that I'm announcing my time with BioWare has ended", he says. He had been hired by BioWare as a guest writer on a Dragon Age project.More news: Robert Pattinson splits from FKA Twigs after three years together
He had a significant run, contributing to everything from Jade Empire to Mass Effect as well as the three main Dragon Age games. For those that have followed the epic adventure that he helped to create, it's hard to see him depart the team that he has spent so much time over the years developing.
"It's been an honour to be a part of the Dragon Age team, and I have every confidence that the world we've created together is in good hands and I'm excited for the road ahead". No immediate future plans were laid out beyond "reconnecting with all the fantastic games and worlds" video gaming has to offer. Laidlaw also has a Twitch account, which he references in his goodbye message, so it looks like he will spend time streaming and connecting with fans.More news: NY grand jury looking for NCAA violations by OSU basketball players
