James Ohlen Retires from BioWare to 'Take a Break from the Industry' - MMORPG.com

BioWare's James Ohlen has retired from the company after 22 years. In a brief Twitter post, Ohlen wrote, "After 22 years, I have retired from BioWare. I've loved my time with Anthem, Star Wars, Dragon Age and Dungeons & Dragons. But I need to take a break from the industry and work on something a little smaller and more personal."

Ohlen has a long and storied career with BioWare. He was, according to GameInformer, first hired by original studio founders Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk after they heard about his "legendary D&D campaigns". He took on the lead role on Baldur's Gate and, later, brought Star Wars: The Old Republic to life. More recently, Ohlen worked on Mass Effect: Andromeda and the now-cancelled Shadow Realms.

We'll keep you posted as the story develops.
