Casey Hudson, the producer of the original Mass Effect trilogy, is coming back to BioWare.
Hudson broke the news by uploading a blog post on the official Bioware blog. In his post, he announced he is will be taking the role of General Manager.
“When I left BioWare three years ago, it was the most difficult decision of my career. I needed some time off, needed a bit of change, and wanted to get involved in the new wave of disruptive technologies that were emerging,” Hudson opened up in his post.
“The last few years have been transformative for me, from having time to reflect on what I most want to do, to working with new technologies at platform scale. And now, I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to return to lead BioWare – a studio that I think of as home.”
Hudson will be replacing the departing GM Aaryn Flynn at Bioware Edmonton.
Flynn has posted his own farewell letter today, looking back on his time at BioWare and explaining his departure.
From my first day until now, I have learned much, met great colleagues and friends, and got the chance to help give players some truly incredible experiences,” Flynn wrote. “Every time I think I’ve found a favourite game making experience, we start something new and somehow find fun and satisfaction in the new challenge.”
“I have been contemplating changes in my own life for some time, but when I heard that Casey had confirmed he was up for the task, I realized the opportunities before us. I will be working with him over the next couple of weeks to help catch him up and do my part to set him up for success to be the best GM he can be.”
Flynn has been with the company for 17 years. He worked on titles like Neverwinter Nights, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, and Jade Empire.
We here at GamersPack we wold like to wish Aaryn Flynn good luck and his next project, and to welcome back Casey Hudson. We can’t wait to see more of Anthem.
