BioWare vet and Dragon Age director Mike Laidlaw is leaving the company

BioWare vet and Dragon Age director Mike Laidlaw is leaving the company”

BioWare's Mike Laidlaw, the veteran writer, designer and creative director known for his work on Mass Effect and Dragon Age, announced today that he's leaving the studio after more than a decade with the company.

This is certainly a major loss for BioWare to lose someone as talented as Mike Laidlaw, but his confidence that the Dragon Age world is "in good hands" should certainly be comforting for fans. It looks like the party is over and they're taking away the balloons at BioWare tonight. Today he said goodbye to a company that he has been with for 14 years, and fans of the incredible worlds that have come from BioWare are "shook". For now, he says he wants to spend some time "reconnecting with all the fantastic games and worlds [his] peers have created", and he plans to share those experiences on Twitch and Twitter.

To everyone who's taken the time to share feedback and experiences, your wonderful cosplays and artistic creations: thank you. You've made my time "in Thedas" awesome. "I look forward to sharing those experiences with you all on Twitch and Twitter". Laidlaw has worked on blockbuster role-playing game series Dragon Age (a fantasy romp) and Mass Effect (a sci-fi franchise). Laidlaw's most recent position with the company had been Creative Director on the Dragon Age series and had even let loose the news that a Dragon Age project was in the works last month.
