BioWare loses co-founders

biowareone

Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk announced they’re retiring from BioWare, the company they founded, with each posting a blog giving reasons for their departure.

Muzyka’s post can be found here, and Zeschuk’s can be found here.

Some comments from each, out of their blog posts follow.

Greg Zeschuk:

After nearly twenty years working at BioWare I’ve decided it’s time to move on and pursue something new. This decision isn’t without significant pain and regret, but it’s also something I know I need to do, for myself and my family. I’ve reached an unexpected point in my life where I no longer have the passion that I once did for the company, for the games, and for the challenge of creation.

Ray Muzyka:

The decision to leave the videogame industry is hard to explain, but essentially I feel similar now to how I felt in the early days of BioWare over the decade post-medical school, while I was still practicing as an ER physician, back when I first realized that the world of video games was my next career ‘chapter’. Two wonderful decades working at BioWare and later EA was the result of that decision. It’s not often that you can truly say you were able to pursue and achieve your dream job; I know how lucky I am to be able to say that now, in my early 40s.

That comes as bad and unexpected news, since BioWare announced Dragon Age III: Inquisition only yesterday. Aaryn Flynn also made a post regarding the situation, and says that after all this time, it’s completely rational to retire. As we have more news, we will update the story.
