Dragon Age creative director Mike Laidlaw exits BioWare

When BioWare fans bring up extraordinary, captivating writing, they always go back to the original Mass Effect.

A new game (presumably, though not necessarily Dragon Age 4) was heavily alluded to by Alexis Kennedy (writer on Sunless Sea) earlier this year.

Laidlaw announced his departure from BioWare on Twitter, stating that he's confident the world of Dragon Age is in good hands. 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.

'In my time at BioWare I have been lucky enough to work with some of the most talented and hardworking people in the industry, ' Laidlaw said.

To anyone who's taken the time to share feedback and experiences, your incredible cosplays and artistic creations: thank you.

He continued: "But I strongly believe that if you try to hold to a rigid plan that is a decade old by the time you reach the end, you are wasting ops". Your passion inspires and I look forward to our next adventure together. Though BioWare has some of the greatest talent in the entire video game industry, losing one always hurts.

After 14 years with the company, Laidlaw has chose to move on. Laidlaw's own announcement hints at that, and Mark Darrah (executive producer on Dragon Age) has responded with a twitter remark to similar effect.
