Outside of some expansions to The Old Republic, Bioware has been pretty quiet on the new release front since the release of Dragon Age: Inquisition back in 2014, but that is about to change with the release of Mass Effect: Andromeda in early 2017. In addition, they are working on a brand new IP, though one big name at the developer that was attached to the game has left the company.
Cameron Lee served as producer on Dragon Age: Inquisition and had previously revealed in early 2015 that he had moved onto the new Bioware IP. According to Lee’s personal blog though, he is no longer at Bioware.
In Lee’s latest blog post, he revealed that he has decided to leave the developer. It’s likely for a number of different personal reasons, but one given is that Lee and his wife are expecting a child and they would like that child to be raised in a big city, of which Bioware is not currently located.
Lee’s departure does not spell the end for this new IP, as he had the following to say about it.
“Since Inquisition shipped I’ve been the Lead Producer of BioWare’s first new IP since the Mass Effect trilogy and it’s been an amazing experience to work with the other leaders and the entire team. The new IP continues on with its development, shepherded by a leadership group with a vision that I think will change the way people experience BioWare games. Everyone working on the New IP is amazingly talented and their work continues to exceed even the lofty expectations at BioWare.”
Lee said he can not reveal what he is working on next, but we certainly wish him the best in his future endeavors.
