BioWare’s Mike Laidlaw has left the building after over a decade with the company. He was instrumental in some of BW’s biggest games including Mass Effect and Dragon Age. Laidlaw made the announcement via Twitter earlier today:

The future of Dragon Age
What the future holds for the DA series remains unknown, though Laidlaw tried to set minds at ease in his post. With the recent Mass Effect game going on indefinite hiatus, it has fans somewhat concerned. The difference between the two, however, is that Dragon Age Inquisition earned very good scores as opposed to those of Mass Effect Andromeda.
Dragon Age 4 has been rumored for quite some time now, though most of BioWare’s efforts are being poured into Anthem, a new sci-fi cooperative FPS that will reportedly launch late in 2018. When, or even if, we hear about DA4 remains to be seen.
While Laidlaw didn’t offer any specific reason for leaving, it has to be assumed that he’s ready to try something new. We’ll be keeping an eagle eye out for where he lands next. We’ll keep you posted!
What do you think of Laidlaw’s news?
