Bioware’s lead writer on the Dragon Age series, David Gaider, has announced that he’s to leave the series, instead working on an upcoming and unannounced Bioware project. He represents over a decade of expertise on the Dragon Age games, and while sad, is equally optimistic about his new project.
“While it’s hard to leave Dragon Age behind, 10 years is a long time to work on any one project. I decided it was time for something new.” said Gaider.
David Gaider made the announcement via his Twitter account.
So a bit of news: I have decided leave Dragon Age and move onto a new, upcoming BioWare project (which I can’t discuss).

Regardless of the move, Gaider is pretty confident that Dragon Age has a prosperous future yet. “I am happy, however, to leave Dragon Age in good hands” explained Gaider. “Patrick Weekes will be lead writer once I’m gone. I can’t think of anyone better.”
The new project that he’s working on is a mystery. Bioware’s newest IP, Shadow Realms, was executed last month. What do you think the project is about?
