David Gaider says goodbye after 17 years with studio

Bioware senior writer and the man behind the Dragon Age stories David Gaider is leaving the company after 17 years. He has yet to confirm what his next career move is.

"It was indeed my decision, one not made easily since BioWare's been very good to me, and the parting is amicable. It's simply time to move onto a new challenge," he told Polygon.

"As to where I'm headed next, that announcement will come in due time - today's about saying goodbye and packing up."
