Mike Laidlaw Says Farewell To The Dragon Age Franchise, And BioWare, In Heartfelt Letter To Fans
13 October, 2017, 18:24
BioWare fans won't rest easy tonight with Mass Effect and Jade Empire writer and Dragon Age: Inquisition director Mike Laidlaw departing the company. Today he said goodbye to a company that he has been with for 14 years, and fans of the fantastic worlds that have come from BioWare are "shook". In his post, he states that even though "it's with a mix of emotions, its time for him to move on".
Laidlaw has been at Bioware for more than 14 years, and has played a role in a number of the studio's most-loved properties, including Jade Empire, Mass Effect, and Dragon Age.
Laidlaw doesn't specify if he has plans to continue his work in game development, but he does say that he'll be "reconnecting with all the fantastic games and worlds that my peers have created".
But it doesn't necessarily spell the end of the Dragon Age series, which Laidlaw says 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.
Laidlaw had previously hinted at new Dragon Age games, telling fans that there is no planned ending for the franchise. There is an evolving plan that tends to look 2 games ahead or so.
Laidlaw was nominated for a 2010 BAFTA Games Award for Best Story in Dragon Age: Origins along with Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk.
