Lead writer at BioWare retires from the industry to focus on novels
After 12 years at BioWare and credits that include Star Wars: The Old Republic and Mass Effect 2, Drew Karpyshyn has announced he is retiring from the games industry.
Karpyshyn explained on his blog that he made the decision in order to move out of his comfort zone and focus on his novels and other non-game related projects.
He reflected, "For the past twelve years I've had the privilege to work at one of the best companies in the video game industry, side by side with the most talented and incredible group of people I've ever had the good fortune to know."
"I've enjoyed my time at BioWare immensely," Karpyshyn continued, "but it's time for me to move on. I'm leaving to focus more time and energy on my novels and other non-video game related projects. But even though I'll no longer be working on games for BioWare, I'm not going to be severing all ties with them. Many of my closest friends still work at the company, and Im also in the process of writing the next Star Wars: The Old Republic novel, though I cant say too much about it yet."
