Mac Walters, a BioWare veteran who has worked on the likes of Jade Empire and Mass Effect, has announced his departure from the company after 19 years.
Walters issued a statement on LinkedIn confirming his departure, and is now listed as taking a career break.
With a new year comes new adventures. As some of you already know, at the end of last year I decided to leave BioWare. These past 19 years have been a life-changing experience to say the least, and it made the choice to go very difficult.
I’ve worked with so many wonderful people and had the privilege to be a part of the most amazing teams and projects. It’s hard to fathom it all, and I know I’ll be reflecting on it for years to come. Thank you to everyone I’ve had the joy of working with, and I wish everyone at BioWare the very best in everything you do. It’s truly been a pleasure.
Beyond his work on Mass Effect, Walters also served as production directly on Dragon Age Dreadwolf, which is currently in development for PS5, PC and Xbox Series X/S.
Walters’ other credits include narrative director on Anthem, and creative director on Mass Effect Andromeda. In addition, he also returned to the series with Mass Effect Legendary Edition, where he served as project director.
