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.

Neverwinter Nights was their peak, the rest has been their decline.

Spot on. They were done after NWN, so circa 2003/4 is when Bioware really ended.

Dragon Age is enough like their older games that I think it's hard to discount completely if you're looking for a timeline. It's almost a modern-day Baldur's Gate with their own license. The first at least, the second not so much.
