'Mass Effect: Andromeda' lead writer joins Bungie

BioWare / EA

Not lengthy after the departure of author David Gaider, one other scribe from Canadian developer BioWare has left the corporate. This time it is the lead author from the upcoming Mass Impact: Andromeda, Chris Schlerf. The announcement comes by means of Schlerf himself by way of a collection of tweets. Naturally, he is proud of his work on the sport and says he is excited to play it upon launch, along with saying that working with BioWare was top-of-the-line experiences of his profession. The place’s he working now? In one other sci-fi universe underneath the make use of of Bungie the place he is presumably writing the subsequent bits of Future.

This shift might sign a couple of issues. Given Schlerf’s brief tenure (his Linkedin profile says he left BioWare final September after becoming a member of in November 2013), he might have been a contracted worker, together with his duties ending as soon as a bulk of the work as lead author was achieved on Andromeda. That’d make his leaving a traditional course of enterprise.

The opposite risk, when mixed with the remainder of BioWare’s excessive-degree exits these previous few years, could be a sign that one thing is afoot on the studio and management-position staff are leaving for higher alternatives sooner slightly than later. We have reached out for extra info and can replace this publish if something turns into clearer.

To verify what some people requested about a couple of months again, I’m not engaged on ME:A at BioWare Montreal.

All that stated, very glad to be again in Seattle, working with this scrappy little firm referred to as Bungie that a few of you’ll have heard of.
