Dragon Age Creative Director Leaves BioWare After 14 Years

Dragon Age Creative Director Leaves BioWare After 14 Years

Laidlaw has spent over a decade at BioWare and has worked on the Jade Empire, Mass Effect and Dragon Age franchises.

Mike Laidlaw, creative director of the Dragon Age series, announced that he has made a decision to leave BioWare after an astonishing 14 year run at the studio. Although Laidlaw has been involved in the development of the Mass Effect series, he primarily served as the lead designer of Dragon Age: Origins, Dragon Age 2, and as creative director of Dragon Age: Inquisition. One wonders if Guns N' Roses' "14 Years" will be playing throughout the BioWare office.

Laidlaw announced his departure from BioWare on Twitter, stating that he's confident the world of Dragon Age is in good hands. He had been hired by BioWare as a guest writer on a Dragon Age project.

The next Dragon Age game may have just suffered a big blow, but we know the franchise as a whole certainly has.

Trump appears to admit he can't do much about 'fake news'
Trump tweeted on Wednesday in what many considered an open attack on the First Amendment. The federal government is not allowed to interfere with what the media reports.

"For the near future, I plan to spend my time reconnecting with all the wonderful games and worlds that my peers have created, and I look forwards to sharing those experiences with you all on Twitch and Twitter", he added.

He continued: "But I strongly believe that if you try to hold to a rigid plan that is a decade old by the time you reach the end, you are wasting ops".

As Laidlaw was such an integral part of the Dragon Age team in particular, some fans may have concerns about the quality of the next Dragon Age game.
