    Hopefully he left to escape the SJW's grasp. They ruin everything they touch.
    God speed if so Mike.

    Would you PLEASE not bring politics to this thread. It'd be nice to actually have it stay open. If people can't refrain from personal political agendas on either side, then it will be closed.

    Let's all try to be grown ups and apply impulse control filters.

    Hopefully he is going somewhere he can make what he wants. I'm sure he just got bored of being with the same company for an extremely long time, I wonder what he can help make elsewhere.

    They've been making the same kind of games that entire time with the same IPs. I'm sure it will be exciting to explore new paths.

    As much as I'd like to think something else, it sounds like joining Gaider at Beamdog, to me.

    Best of luck to him for his future endeavors. Not to sure how to take the news since it really isn't at all surprising. Only time will tell if it will be good or bad for all the projects he was apart of at Bioware.

    Yeah, making that many so similar games for 14 years is more then enough (but it could be worse, he could have worked for Maxis). Let's hope he get to make something rather different. :)
