Daniel Erickson Confirms BioWare Departure

BioWare loses another key player as SWTOR Lead Designer Daniel Erickson will be parting ways with the studio.

The hits keep on coming for BioWare. After a round of layoffs earlier this year, the departure of former Executive Producer Rich Vogel and the retirement announcement from founders Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk, Star Wars: The Old Republic Lead Designer/Creative Director Daniel Erickson this week also announced that he will also be leaving the studio. News of Erickson’s departure surfaced late yesterday via a reader tip to Massively pointing to Erickson's new Twitter account. Erickson today confirmed the news to Gamasutra.

“I can confirm that I am parting ways with BioWare,” Erickson told Gamasutra. "After seven years learning from the best in the business I am again looking for ways to grow as a creative leader and an artist.”
