They will always be an essential part of the studio’s history, we appreciate their many contributions, and we look forward to seeing what they’ll each do next.”[/perfectpullquote]

Leaving is “not an easy decision to make,” Hudson said in the farewell blog post. As you know might not know, Casey Hudson departed BioWare in 2014 after working on the original Mass Effect trilogy. He then returned in 2017 to take on the role of general manager.

Now, as BioWare celebrates its 25th anniversary, the studio is poised for an exciting new era of amazing games. It’s an exciting time, both in terms of projects you’ve heard about and some things not yet announced.”[/perfectpullquote]

Darrah expressed the same confidence in the studio saying that after more than 20 years at BioWare, leaving the company was a very difficult decision.

They have taught me so much. But the strength of the team is also what makes this possible. I know that Dragon Age won’t just survive without me, it will thrive.”[/perfectpullquote]

But all is not lost for BioWare. The studio is currently working on multiple announced and unannounced games. This includes the much-anticipated Mass Effect: Legendary Edition which is a remaster of the original three games. In addition, the studio recently announced a new Mass Effect game is currently in development. Of course, there’s also the sequel to Dragon Age which we are just calling “Dragon Age 4” for now. The studio needs something good. After two abysmal game launches including Mass Effect Andromeda and Anthem, BioWare has lost its magical touch of which we hope returns in the upcoming releases.
