Matthew Goldman, Senior Creative Director of Dragon time, has left BioWare for the second time after spending more than 20 years with the company in two terms.
Goldman’s departure was first outed by Kotaku, who received an internal email from Studio GM Gary McKay yesterday. An Electronic Arts representative also separately confirmed the news.
McKay’s email is:
I hope you are well. I am writing to inform you that Matt Goldman is leaving BioWare. We mutually agreed to part ways and his last day is today.
We understand that Matt’s departure has an impact on you and the development of the game. Rest assured that our commitment to high quality Dragon Age game has continued and we will not ship any game that does not meet BioWare standards.
We, including the leadership team at EA, have absolute confidence in the leadership here in the studio and the people who are working on this game to advance our vision.
Goldman joined BioWare in 1998 after graduating with a degree in visual communications. He was with the company for seven years before joining Microsoft, where he worked for three years. Goldman returned to BioWare in early 2009 and has since held several positions while at the Dragon time Franchise.
“Matt Goldman no longer works at BioWare,” EA told Kotaku. “He’s leaving the next one Dragon time Game in excellent hands, with the team here in the studio that will carry our vision for the game forward. “
Dragon Age 4 is reportedly only in development for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X / S and PC.[Source: Kotaku]
