After 17 iconic years, Bioware writer David Gaider has announced his departure from the company.
Gaider was the lead writer on the Dragon Age franchise, and helped create one of the best characters of the past few years in Dorian. Gaider has been open about creating more “inclusive” games in the past years, and he set that idea forth with Inquisition. You can check out a great piece from Gaming Trend’s own Kenneth Shepard regarding Dorian here.
Some news: I must sadly announce that, after 17 years, today is my last day at BioWare. I’ll miss my team, and wish everyone here the best.

Apart from Dragon Age, Gaider also had a large role in the creation of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. His first lead writer position came with Neverwinter Nights: Hordes of the Underdark.
Gaider has confirmed to Polygon that it was his decision to leave the company.
