Mass Effect director Casey Hudson leaves BioWare
Mass Effect series director and BioWare executive producer Casey Hudson left BioWare, a company blog revealed Aug. 7.
BioWare general manager Aaryn Flynn revealed Hudson chose to step away from BioWare, but it wasn’t made clear whether Hudson was moving on to another ventures in the industry.
Hudson’s letter outlined how he stayed at BioWare long enough to ensure the company’s new IP in Edmonton was secured and the next Mass Effect was underway.
In a farewell letter to fans, Hudson conveyed appreciation for their support. He also expressed excitement to be a fan with them and try future finished BioWare products.
According to Flynn’s blog, Hudson began at BioWare as a technical artist for Neverwinter Nights and MDK2. He oversaw Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic as project director, and then stepped in as director for the Mass Effect series.
Whether Hudson will appear at a new studio remains to be seen, but it would certainly fit in with the continuing shift of game and hardware developers in 2014. We’ve seen developers jump ship to Oculus and abandon a troubled Crytek to form independent studios.
