Mike Laidlaw, veteran writer and creative director for the Dragon Age series has left BioWare after 14 years of dedicated service to the studio.
“It’s with a mix of emotions that I’m announcing my time with BioWare has ended. After 14 years and a chance to work on Jade Empire, Mass Effect and all things Dragon Age it’s time to move on.”
Laidlaw announced his departure from Bioware in a tweet explaining that, “I plan to spend my time reconnecting with all the amazing games and words that my peers have created”. While giving no exact reason for leaving the studio it is clear that Laidlaw is leaving on good terms and has faith that he has left Dragon Age in good hands with his peers at BioWare.
