Bioware, best known for developing the Mass Effect and Dragon Age series, has recently lost two of it’s lead developers.
The first, Ben Irving, was the lead producer for Anthem, the Iron Man-esque action loot shooter released earlier this year. Anthem’s release has been marred by mediocrity and few updates to the game. In the past month it finally got it’s first substantial content injection titled Cataclysm, but it doesn’t seem to have done much for the game or community. Irving posted on Twitter about leaving Bioware, claiming that working there was a ‘dream job’.
The second developer to leave the company is Fernando Melo, lead producer for Dragon Age 4 which is still in development. Melo had previously worked on both Dragon Age: Origins and Dragon Age 2, he also played a role in the development of Mass Effect Andromeda. Similarly, he also detailed his departure from the company in a series of tweets.
