BioWare Founders Retire

The BioWare Blog announces BioWare founders Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk are retiring from the company they co-founded in 1995 and sold to Electronic Arts in 2007. They offer a message from Ray Muzyka and one from Greg Zeschuk as well as one from Aaryn Flynn, the General Manager of BioWare Edmonton and Montreal, who discusses what this means for the future, including word on a new IP:

Both Dragon Age and Mass Effect started as single games but grew into vast universes. But we arenít stopping there. While Casey continues to oversee the development of our new Mass Effect project, he and his leads are putting together their vision for an all new game set in a fictional universe, built from the bottom-up with all new gaming technology.

Bioware sold out a long time ago, and made a ton of money for it. Neither of these founders are contractually obligated to stick around and have jumped the proverbial burning ship.


Hopefully they are satisfied with the amount they made and go on to create something that is true to their creative sides, without the temptation to cash in quick again.

I expect the franchises to continue but the soul to be lost.

Have you played any of their recent titles? IMO it's just been more formulaic garbage with the primary intent being a revenue stream for EA, not simply "lets make great games", which is what they were once known for.
