Star Wars: The Old Republic Lead Leaves BioWare

A new Twitter account from Daniel Erickson announces his departure from BioWare Austin, where he was Creative Director and lead designer on Star Wars: The Old Republic, the MMORPG that has not proven to be the force in the marketplace that some expected. The reasons for this are not revealed, but along the way he comments on the current focus of commercial game development: "When 90% of the industry is saying the exact same thing (social, mobile, FTP!) a huge number of people are going to lose that race." Thanks MCV.

but I'm still holding out some SMALL hope for DA3.

Oh, Creston...

I know, but come on... DA:O was fucking AMAZING. I mean, that's likely in my top 5 RPGs of all time, so if enough of that team remains, and EA's influence can be kept to a medium-or-less degree, and Mike Laidlaw gets the Nigerian Ass Flu for two years so he can't fuck shit up anymore, there's a CHANCE DA3 will be good.


I loved DA:O. DA2 was disappointing. I actually liked the combat better, but not the crazy appearing enemies. other than that, the game was ridiculous in its use of the same art assets over, and over, and over, and....Not to mention the small scope of the game compared to DA:O.

Mass Effect? Pretty good. ME2 was not as good, and I stopped playing like halfway through.

SWTOR made me swear off Bioware for good. Unless DA3 is the critical darling of the year, I won't even bother touching it. I'll wait for Creston to tell us how crap it was and thank God I didn't pay for it. ;D
