All good things must come to an end and for Casey Hudson of BioWare, the time was right for him to step away. Casey has been with BioWare for 16 years and was executive producer for the Mass Effect series.
Starting out as a technical artist on Neverwinter Nights and MDK2, Casey moved up the ranks to spearhead one of the most revered franchises in gaming. The next Mass Effect will have to go on without him, but I'm sure he's left it in very good hands.
Besides the Mass Effect, Neverwinter Nights, and MDK2, he's also worked on Jade Empire, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, and Baldur's Gate II, a pretty impressive list of titles.
No word on where Casey is heading to next or who is going to replace him in his role at BioWare.
