Bioware writer Drew Karpyshyn is leaving Bioware and the games industry in order to focus on his writing exclusively. Karpyshyn has worked with Bioware for the past twelve years writing for both Star Wars: The Old Republic and the Mass Effect series.
Currently, Karpyshyn has another Old Republic novel in the works and is working on his own fantasy series tentatively called Children of Fire.
During my time at BioWare I worked on a number of beloved and award winning titles. I'm proud of everything we accomplished, and I know going forward that BioWare will continue to live up to its well deserved reputation for making the best story driven games in the industry. The story and dialogue in any BioWare game is the result of an entire team of writers working together, and I often felt I received an excessive amount of the credit for the games we created.
