Bad news for fans, as creative director LEAVES BioWare

'Dragon Age' Creative Director Mike Laidlaw Leaves BioWare Mike Laidlaw Says Farewell To The Dragon Age Franchise, And BioWare, In Heartfelt Letter To Fans
Kayla Schwartz | 13 October, 2017, 22:59

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.

(Note not to confuse the situation with Marc Laidlaw, who left Valve after 18 years with the company in 2016.) Laidlaw was a veteran of the studio who served as lead writer on Jade Empire, helped develop the first Mass Effect, and was creative director of the Dragon Age series.

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

Mobile puts a cap on high-speed data roaming in Canada, Mexico
After 5GB, you will still have unlimited data at Simple Global speeds (up to 128kbps or 256kbps if you have ONE Plus). After using the 50GB of LTE data you'll likely be slowed down to a crawl, especially during the more congested hours.

Laidlaw had previously hinted at new Dragon Age games, telling fans that there is no planned ending for the franchise. In any case, Laidlaw isn't likely to spill the beans on BioWare's internal dramas anytime soon as he plans to "reconnect" with the "amazing" games created by his industry peers.

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

At the end of the day, a company and its franchises are only as strong as the people behind them. 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". The former Dragon Age developer goes on to thank players for sharing their feedback, experiences, cosplay, and artistic creations, adding that "your passion inspires me and I look forward to our next adventure together".
