Dragon Age 4 creative director to leave BioWare after more than 20 years at the studio
Dragon Age 4 is one of those long-awaited games that makes us arch our eyebrows on more than one occasion. BioWare’s new game is still a long way off, but the news coming out about its development isn’t all positive. A year ago, several creatives left the project, and now another figure has joined the ranks.
As reported, Matt Goldman has announced his departure from the Electronic Arts studio, an industry veteran who has been a member of BioWare since 1998, and senior creative director on the Dragon Age series since he was promoted to that role in 2017.
“I am writing to let you know that Matt Goldman is leaving BioWare,” reads the email CEO Gary McKay sent to staff. “We have mutually agreed to part ways, and it is his last day today. We understand that you will be affected by his departure, as well as the game’s development.” “Our commitment to delivering a high-quality Dragon Age has not yet been fulfilled, and we will not publish a game that does not meet BioWare’s standards. We and the executive team at EA have absolute confidence in the studio’s leadership and the people who are working to move our vision forward,” he concludes.
At the moment, it’s not known who will take Goldman’s place, but the new Dragon Age game is leaving a lot of questions. Let’s remember that there is still no release date on the calendar, although we recently learned that it would probably be released exclusively on next-gen.
