A couple of changes have hit BioWare today that kind of have us both depressed and excited. First, the bad news: Aaryn Flynn has decided to depart the company after 17 years. No official reason was given by him in his official statement on their website, only that he had "been contemplating changes in my own life for some time." The letter is a lovely statement to the fans and to the staff as he takes note of his career, totally worth a read.
No sooner had his departure been posted than a second letter went up, this one from Casey Hudson as he announced he was returning to BioWare in the role of their General Manager. Hudson left back in 2014 to be a part of Microsoft's team as the Creative Director for Hololens. He talks about his decision to leave the first time around and says he's thrilled to be back at a place he thinks of as home.
It's kind of an interesting circumstance to see, especially after the most news you see from BioWare these days revolves around the dissatisfaction people have had with Mass Effect Andromeda and the demands to fix the game as they released one of the biggest bug-filled titles of the year. We'll see if the change in management does anything for fans as the company pushes forward on their next project, Anthem.
