Mass Effect 1 and 2 lead essayists, Drew Karpyshyn, has left BioWare by and by. He already surrendered in 2012 to seek after non-gaming ventures and is doing as such again to chip away at more unique books. Be that as it may, despite everything he’ll be doing some independent gaming work.
Karpyshyn wrote about On his Blog:
I know a lot of you are wondering why I’m doing this. For many people, working at BioWare would be their dream job and they can’t imagine anyone stepping away from it. But it was time for me to move on.
Everyone who works there pours their heart and soul into the games they are making. It’s creatively demanding and – at times – exhausting. In the past, I’ve managed to juggle outside projects with my work at BioWare, but it always took a toll. And there were always outside projects I had to pass on because they would represent a conflict of interest with BioWare or EA properties.
So I made the decision to step back (again) and focus on my freelance work. I’d love to say more about the novel(s) I’m working on, or my graphic novel project, but those details will have to wait a while.
Karpyshyn will now be working for Fogbank Entertainment, a new San Francisco studio set up by FoxNext Games.
