‘I can’t wait to play from this side of the screen’
Anthem director Jonathan Warner has announced that he has left developer BioWare after 10 years with the company. Warner worked with the Canadian studio as a producer on the Mass Effect series, and also operated as the studio’s Chief of Staff.
Speaking on Twitter, Warner wished his former studio best wishes, but did not denote his career plans going forward. “BioWare has been home to my grateful heart for nearly 10 years and I want to wish them all the best,” he wrote. “[Dragon Age, Mass Effect] and [Star Wars: The Old Republic] are in good hands and I can’t wait to play from this side of the screen.”
Warner joined BioWare back in 2012, having already had a high-ranking career in the entertainment industry, having previously worked for Microsoft, Electronic Arts, and Walt Disney. Warner’s final title for BioWare, Anthem, is in the process of winding down operations as BioWare focuses on its other IPs.
BioWare has lost three of its producers in the past six months, with the departure of Mass Effect director Casey Hudson and Dragon Age producer Mark Darrah back in December.
So, today is my last day at BioWare, Iâ€™m moving on to do new things.BioWare has been home to my grateful heart for nearly 10 years and I want to wish them all the best. DA ME and SWTOR are in good hands and I canâ€™t wait to play from this side of the screen. #ThankYou #BioWare pic.twitter.com/g5zp7hkSV5
