Co-founders exit BioWare

Written by David Stellmack

EA not a factor in the decision

In a surprise announcement, the BioWare doctors, who are better known as Dr. Ray Muzyka and Dr. Greg Zeschuk, have both decided to leave the company they co-founded. Both have expressed a desire to pursue new careers that are outside of the gaming industry.

The news is shocking from two individuals who have been in the industry for more than two decades. Both claim that EA played no role or was not a factor in their decision to depart BioWare.

In an open letter to fans, the pair expressed their thanks to colleagues and fans for their support over the years. While the pair does acknowledge it was difficult decision, it has apparently been in the works since April 2012 when they provided notice to EA that they would be departing BioWare. The six-month period has provided time for a solid transition to the teams at BioWare.

While the pair did not close the door on the possibility that they might be back in the video game industry at some point, it certainly will not be for a while, and perhaps never. Whispers we have heard for some time indicated that Zeschuk left BioWare unofficially after former MLG CEO Matthew Bromberg was hired as General Manager of BioWare Austin. However, we were never able to confirm this from inside BioWare. The pair leaves a great legacy behind and will be missed by colleagues and fans alike.
