BioWare writer/director Mike Laidlaw departs company after 14 years


It is only appropriate that in his letter to the public that he ends it with a popular Elven endearment from the Dragon Age series, "Ma Serannas", which means "My thanks/thank you". Just like that folks, the golden age of modern BioWare loses a creative force.

Over the past couple of years, Mass Effect and Dragon Age developer BioWare has lost several employees in key roles.

Mike Laidlaw, the creative director behind BioWare's hit RPG series, Dragon Age, has departed from the studio following a 14 year stint.

"It's with a mix of emotions that I'm announcing my time at BioWare has ended", said Laidlaw in a statement shared via his Twitter account.

BioWare and Dragon Age lost another long-standing member last year when David Gaider, a writer there for 17 years, left and then joined Baldur's Gate enhancer Beamdog. For now, he says he wants to spend some time "reconnecting with all the fantastic games and worlds [his] peers have created", and he plans to share those experiences on Twitch and Twitter.

As for his immediate plans, the Dragon Age creative director said he wants to reconnect with some incredible games.

As Laidlaw was such an integral part of the Dragon Age team in particular, some fans may have concerns about the quality of the next Dragon Age game.
