BioWare General Manager Casey Hudson and Dragon Age Executive Producer Mark Darrah have both announced that they will resign as well-known developers of RPG games. The company is currently looking for a replacement for Hudson, but Dollar will be taken over by Christian Daily, who joined BioWare from Blizzard a few years ago. Development of future Mass Effect and Dragon Age games continues.
“Christian Daily is a powerful leader and provides great insight into the rest of the remaining Dragon Age leadership,” writes Dollar. “This is a team that includes people with decades of experience at BioWare. Together, I’m convinced that this is the team that can make this Dragon Age the best ever. . “
Matthew Goldman remains the creative director of the fourth, yet untitled game of the Dragon Age series. “”[Goldman] Dragon Age: I’ve been using Dragon Age since the early days of Origins, “Darrah wrote. “Like me, he’s been involved in franchises because the franchise has changed over the years. He has a deep understanding of what it was and what it could be. I am. “
Dollar also tweeted about Dragon Age at the time, and it was wild.
Both Dollar and Hudson have been with BioWare for 20 years. Recently, with a mild reaction to Mass Effect Andromeda and a cold welcome to Anthem, the studio struggled to regain the attention of its fans after the game returned to development for a major restart. The announcement of the long-awaited Mass Effect remastered collection and the major new entries in the Mass Effect and Dragon Age series are a bit off to renew fan excitement.
“It’s not easy to decide,” Hudson says of his departure. “And such a big change always comes with some sadness. It’s the biggest and most exciting project I can imagine, and I miss working with exciting developers every day. I know it’s a good time for change, both for myself and for BioWare. “
