Dragon Ages Senior Creative Director Has Left BioWare

Dragon Age's Senior Creative Director Has Left BioWare

Matt Lorrigan

Dragon Age senior creative director Matthew Goldman has left developer BioWare, according to a report from Kotaku.

Goldman served as art director on Dragon Age: Origins and Dragon Age II, and was the principle visual director on Dragon Age: Inquisition. Since then, he has been the senior creative director for Dragon Age as a series, including Dragon Age 4, it seems, according to the internal BioWare email announcing his departure.

“We understand that Matt’s departure has an impact on you, as well as the game’s development. Rest assured our commitment to a high-quality Dragon Age game has not waivered, and we will not ship a game that is not up to BioWare’s standards,” says the email from BioWare general manager Gary McKay.

“We, including EA’s executive team, have absolute confidence in the leadership here at the studio and the people working on this game to carry forward our vision.”

Dragon Age 4 has had a somewhat tumultuous development so far, with the game reportedly created with a heavy multiplayer component planned, which has since been cancelled in the interest of making a more traditionally single-player RPG. Our last Dragon Age 4 teaser showed us a glimpse of the villainous Solas, and the game will apparently be exclusive to Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and PC, leaving last-gen consoles behind.
