The writer for Mass Effect Andromeda is leaving BioWare and will now be working with Bungie. It’s highly possible he is going to start working on Destiny 2 which is scheduled to be out in 2017.
Chris Schlerf tweeted out the following: “To confirm what some folks asked about a few months back, I am no longer working on ME:A at BioWare Montreal. Sincerely one of the best experiences of my career-I’m incredibly grateful to have worked w/ such talented & truly wonderful human beings. Think MEA (Mass Effect Andromeda) is really gonna blow people away; couldn’t be prouder to be part of it, & excited like a lil kid to play the final when it’s out.
All that said, very happy to be back in Seattle, working with this scrappy little company called Bungie that some of you may have heard of. Think we might have some interesting stories to tell…And now, to catch up on all the cat videos I missed when I was away. Recommendations are welcome.”
His updated Twitter profile states that he’s the lead writer for Bungie, so he’ll be making all of the main decisions from now on. Many people said the first Destiny had an underwhelming story, so Schlerf’s involvement for the second game could be seen as a big improvement.
As aforementioned, Destiny 2 will be out in 2017. Before the sequel comes out, one more big expansion pack is expected to be released for the original game later this year.
