Mass Effect lead writer Drew Karpyshyn leaves BioWare a second time

Mass Effect lead writer Drew Karpyshyn leaves BioWare a second time

Erickson is at the helm of Fogbank Entertainment, as the studio's director, accompanied by veterans such as Kabam's Nathan Germick, as executive producer, and former BioWare lead writer Alex Reed, who will oversee narrative development.

Karpyshyn recently announced that, as of this month, he is no longer an employee of either BioWare or EA and will be working on his own personal projects as well as serve as a freelance writer for other studios.

Drew Karpyshyn is the lead writer of Mass Effect 1 & 2 which is known for its addictive storyline so since the announcement fans are concerned and anxious about the writer leaving the studio and how that may affect Anthem. He re-joined in 2015 to help out with new story content for Star Wars: The Old Republic before moving on to help Bioware create Anthem, which will be released in "early 2019".

I know a lot of you are wondering why I'm doing this. "But it was time for me to move on", Karpyshyn said on his website. He worked at BioWare for several years before leaving in 2012.

"Everyone who works at BioWare pours their heart and soul into the games they are making", he added. "It's creatively demanding and-at times-exhausting", he said.

According to his own announcement on the matter, Karpyshyn chose to leave BioWare simply because he could no longer juggle his personal projects with that of work for BioWare.

So I made the decision to step back (again) and focus on my freelance work. I know some people are going to dwell on the past, but that's not my style.

Despite the odd circumstances, Karpyshyn assures us that there is no "dirty laundry" to air between him and BioWare or EA. I can't say a lot about what we're up to yet, but here's the official Fogbank Entertainment announcement.

Addressing the concerns, Casey Hudson Tweeted to the community: "Story will always be an important part of every BioWare game". Narrative and story-driven games continue to rank among the top grossing and most downloaded games across industry standards, and we're assembling a team of people dedicating to furthering the form. But which Fox IP will it be? Something, um, Home Alone?
