For those that have followed the epic adventure that he helped to create, it's hard to see him depart the team that he has spent so much time over the years developing. Mike Laidlaw has been paramount to works such as the Mass Effect trilogy, the Dragon Age franchise, and the infamous Jade Empire title. He's worked on games like Jade Empire, Mass Effect, Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood, and the aforementioned Dragon Age series, and many thought he was helming the all-but-announced fourth game in the main Dragon Age series.

In my time at BioWare I have been lucky to work with some of the most talented and hardworking people in the industry.

Longtime BioWare employee Mike Laidlaw has left the company, he announced on Twitter today.

Whether Laidlaw has left with a new game in the middle of production isn't exactly clear. He took on the role of lead designer on Dragon Age before becoming the creative director then senior creative director for the entire franchise.

While the departure of Laidlaw will be a shock to fans of the fantasy RPG, it doesn't seem that this will affect the series going forward.Dragon Age executive producer Mark Darrah seemed to confirm as much in a tweeted response to Laidlaw's statement.

Laidlaw was nominated for a 2010 BAFTA Games Award for Best Story in Dragon Age: Origins along with Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk.
