It’s a sad day. Well yesterday was a sad day, when David Gaider, lead writer of Bioware’s Dragon Age series decided to part ways with the studio, after 17 years of service. I imagine the franchise will move forward, but with Gaider, it grew into something even more exceptional with Dragon Age Inquisition.
“It was indeed my decision, not one made easily since BioWare’s been very good to me, and the parting is amicable,” he wrote. “As to where I’m headed next, that announcement will come in due time.”
Some news: I must sadly announce that, after 17 years, today is my last day at BioWare. I'll miss my team, and wish everyone here the best.
