Ask many a Dragon Age fan who David Gaider is and they'll probably point out that he's partly responsible for bringing BioWare's fantasy role-playing series to life. Gaider's typically great writing can be found in all three Dragon Age titles that have appeared on PlayStation platforms. He also wrote numerous novels and comics based on the franchise.

With his work on Dragon Age being such a success, it's a little sad to hear that Gaider's moving on to pastures new, having announced on Twitter that he's leaving BioWare after an impressive 17 years of service. Although the reasons for his departure are unclear, he states that "I'll miss my team, and wish everyone here the best."

Naturally, we hope Gaider finds greatness in whatever he decides to do next.
