BioWare veteran Mack Walters has left the developer after 19 years of service. Walters is best known for his work on the Mass Effect series, and in particular, he was credited as the head writer on both Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3. Most recently, he was the project director on the groundbreaking Mass Effect Legendary Edition. , and was the production director for the upcoming Dragon Age: Dreadwolf.
“As some of you already know, at the end of last year I decided to leave Bioware. It has been a life-changing experience to say the least over the past 19 years, and it made the choice very difficult. created,” Walters writes. He is now taking a break before deciding what to do next.
As you’d expect from a nearly two-decade tenure, it wasn’t always smooth sailing during Walters’ time at BioWare. He oversaw the groundbreaking Mass Effect: Andromeda game as creative director, and for a time, was narrative director on ANTHEM.
But it’s fair to say that without Walters, Mass Effect wouldn’t be the beloved franchise it is today. With his departure now confirmed, it will be interesting to see how the currently in the works Mass Effect sequel pans out. After all, Bioware looks like a very different company these days.
Naturally, we wish Mac all the best in his future endeavors.
