Today Mike Laidlawannounced his departure from Bioware, where he's been involved with games including Jade Empire, Mass Effect and the entire Dragon Age series. In 2010, he was nominated along with BioWare cofounders Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk for a British Academy Video Games Award for Story for Dragon Age: Origins. Jade Empire's fan acclaim and Dragon Age: Inquisition's high Metacritic (89 on PS4) score? It looks like the party is over and they're taking away the balloons at BioWare tonight. In his 14 years at the studio, he worked on multiple RPG franchises, including Mass Effect and Jade Empire.

Laidlaw says that he's been lucky to work with so many talented and hardworking people, and that he looks forward to seeing where the studio takes the Dragon Age universe in the future.
