UPDATE - David Gaider Joins Beamdog - Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition - MMORPG.com

UPDATE: David Gaider has confirmed his employment with Beamdog in a new Twitter post and the Beamdog site has a confirming blog post as well.

In a series of not-so-cryptic cryptic Tweets by several folks, it appears that ex-Bioware writer David Gaider may have joined the studio that has brought us enhanced, modernized versions of Baldur's Gate, Baldur's Gate 2 and Icewind Dale. Beamdog is home to a number of ex-Bioware employees including Brent Knowles and Shawn Potter. Gaider had most recently worked as the lead writer on Dragon Age: Inquisition.

From the Beamdog blog:

We also hired a writer named Dave. He seems pretty cool so far.

Beamdog Lead Designer Phillip Daigle said:

Beamdog have hired DA:O lead designer Brent Knowles and “a writer named Dave”

And Gaider himself Tweeted:

Starting a new job: 25% paperwork, 25% documentation, 150% confusion. I definitely need more stuff on my desk.
