Must read

Anthem Game director Jonathan Warner left BioWare after nearly 10 years at the studio. Twitter alongside a gif of the Inception spinning top.

“So today is my last day at BioWare,” Warner wrote. “I’m moving on to new things. BioWare has been home to my grateful heart for almost 10 years and I want to wish them the best. [Dragon Age, Mass Effect, and Star Wars: The Old Republic] are in good hands and I can’t wait to play this side of the screen. #Thank you #BioWare “Warner’s decision to leave comes just over a month later BioWare has officially announced that it will stop development on Anthem Next.

Anthem had a rough launch when it was released in 2019, and BioWare revealed he had plans to recast the anthem to improve the main game loop and systems like loot, quests, and social items. Sadly, with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic and the studio’s desire to focus on Dragon Age and Mass Effect, that plan was never realized.

This is another important departure for BioWare, and follows news from last year that Casey Hudson, CEO of BioWare, and Mark Darrah, executive producer of Dragon Age 4, were also leaving the studio.Despite these changes, EA CEO Andrew Wilson said in 2020 that he was “very, very confident” in the future of the studio, a future that includes Dragon Age 4, the Legendary Mass Effect Edition, and the next entry in the Mass Effect series.
