Mass Effect executive producer Casey Hudson will leave BioWare after 16 years to take on a “new stage” of his career, the company has announced.
Studio general manager Aaryn Flynn posted the news earlier today on BioWare’s blog, including a portion of Hudson’s memo to company employees:
"After what already feels like a lifetime of extraordinary experiences, I have decided to hit the reset button and move on from BioWare. I'll take a much needed break, get perspective on what I really want to do with the next phase of my life, and eventually, take on a new set of challenges,” Hudson said.
"Though there's never an easy time to make a change like this, I believe this is the best time for it. The foundation of our new IP in Edmonton is complete, and the team is ready to move forward into pre-production on a title that I think will redefine interactive entertainment.
