Dragon Age lead writer abandons Bioware after 17 years
It is a sad day at Bioware. Writer David Gaider, who has worked on projects such as Dragon Age and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, leaves the studio after 17 years of service.
The announcement is made by David himself through a sad tweet in which he regrets the abandonment and predicts that the Bioware team will be a hard miss to bear.
The decision for this separation comes from the writer himself, who stated that this was a necessary step in his life, a maneuver to find new challenges and to grow artistically. At the moment we do not know where he is headed, or if he has found a new job in which to assert his talents, but today is the day he packs his bags from his “home”.
Gaider’s career is long, starting from Baldur’s Gate and then moving on to Neverwinter and countless other series that have made history from 1999 to today. In addition to the gaming side, he has also collaborated on several comics of Dragon Age and created the first openly *** character, just like the author, in the franchise: Dorian Altus, the famous magister of the tevinter who appeared in Inquisition.
Although we can’t wait to see the new projects he will try his hand at, we wonder if Bioware will be able to weave new textures even without his hand.
