The Lead producer of Bioware’s Anthem, Ben Irving, has announced his departure from the studio.
The developer revealed on Twitter (below) he was leaving the Mass Effect maker to join a different firm in the industry. However, he has made no mention of what organisation he is moving to.
He departs after working at BioWare for eight years.
Irving did note that the future of Anthem is bright, with a strong team continuing to work on the game after his departure.
“I will forever be grateful to all the people who gave me the chance to work on great products with amazing people. I believe Anthem has a bright future - there is a great team working on it and I look forward to following its progress (and playing it!) from the sidelines,” said Irvin on Twitter.
“I have really enjoyed interacting with the Anthem community - Streams, Twitter and Reddit. Through the good times and the tough times.
“You all are in great hands with @Darokaz and @UNTDrew (and have been for some time now). I wish nothing but the best for all of you. Ben.”
Bioware’s newest title failed to live up to expectations as Electronic Arts revealed earlier this year. However, despite not performing as well as the publisher would like it chose to stand by Anthem and its developer.
(1/3) After 8 amazing years at BioWare I have made the decision to move on and have accepted an exciting opportunity at another gaming company. Since the first time I played Baldurs Gate many many years ago, BioWare was the dream place I always wanted to work.— Ben Irving (@BenIrvo) August 15, 2019
