BioWare writer/director Mike Laidlaw departs company after 14 years

Mike Laidlaw Says Farewell To The Dragon Age Franchise, And BioWare, In Heartfelt Letter To Fans

Laidlaw had previously hinted at new Dragon Age games, telling fans that there is no planned ending for the franchise.

Laidlaw then goes on to say how much he has enjoyed being part of the Dragon Age team and thanking all the fans for their continued support.

The creative director of the Dragon Age series, Mike Laidlaw, has announced on Twitter that he will be leaving BioWare after working there for 14 years.

Making the announcement on Twitter last night, Laidlaw provided few details about his decision, writing only that "it's time for [him] to move on".




In my time at BioWare I have been lucky to work with some of the most talented and hardworking people in the industry. He also worked on the Mass Effect series, but his legacy at the studio is firmly tied to the Dragon Age franchise, for which he was originally the lead designer before becoming the senior creative director.

So after 14 years of hard work and a sack on his back with a lot of successful titles, Laidlaw has chose to step off the directing for BioWare and go back to what we all want to do at some point, play the game. In any case, Laidlaw isn't likely to spill the beans on BioWare's internal dramas anytime soon as he plans to "reconnect" with the "amazing" games created by his industry peers.

It could be some time yet until the next Dragon Age is revealed and for Laidlaw's assurances to be proved correct.
