Bioware writer Drew Karpyshyn has announced he is leaving the firm and the game industry as a whole.
“During my time at BioWare I worked on a number of beloved and award winning titles,” he wrote on his blog. “I’m proud of everything we accomplished, and I know going forward that BioWare will continue to live up to its well deserved reputation for making the best story driven games in the industry.
“The story and dialog in any BioWare game is the result of an entire team of writers working together, and I often felt I received an excessive amount of the credit for the games we created.
“The Dragon Age games and the continued success of the Mass Effect series after my departure make it pretty clear that BioWare can get along just fine without me, and I’m looking forward to experiencing the games as a fan rather than from the other side of the fence.”
Karpyshyn inked many a Bioware title, including: Baldur’s Gate, Knights of the Old Republic, Jade Empire and the Mass Effect series.
We wish him the best of luck.
