BioWare's Mike Laidlaw, the designer and creative director known for his work on Mass Effect, Jade Empire and the Dragon Age series, has announced that he's leaving after 14 years with the studio.

Making the announcement on Twitter last night, Laidlaw provided few details about his decision, writing only that "it's time for [him] to move on". Dragon Age lead writer David Gaider departed the company early a year ago, while Mass Effect: Andromeda's lead writer left BioWare for Bungie.

Directorate-general of the UNESCO: The French Audrey Azoulay elected
Thirty votes are needed to clinch the nomination to head the Paris-based UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization. The victor must be approved by UNESCO's 195 member states in November, though this is seen as a formality.

It's sad to hear about Laidlaw's departure from BioWare but it's nice to hear that he'll be spending his time just sitting back and enjoying some of the other fantastic games that are out. He was creative director of the Dragon Age series, as well as a writer for Mass Effect and Jade Empire.

"For the near future, I plan to spend my time reconnecting with all the wonderful games and worlds that my peers have created, and I look forwards to sharing those experiences with you all on Twitch and Twitter". In 2015, Dragon Age: Inquisition won two NAVGTR Awards, Game of the Year and Game Design, Franchise, and was nominated for Game, Franchise Role Playing. That title, which would be the fourth game in the franchise, has yet to be officially announced by BioWare and publisher EA. "It's been an honor to be part of the Dragon Age team, and I have every confidence that the world we've created together is in good hands". But fans will be hoping that the wait for Dragon Age - and Laidlaw's next project, whatever it may be - is well worth the wait.
