Lead Writer for Mass Effect Returns to Bioware
Drew Karpyshyn was the lead writer for Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2, leaving Bioware in 2012 to pursue writing a trilogy of books dubbed, “Chaos Born.” He has recently finished work on the third and final entry, “Chaos Unleashed,” and in a blog update announced he would be rejoining Bioware. He will not be working on a new project, instead saying he came to Austin to work on Star Wars The Old Republic and that is what he will be working on once again. He will also be hosting an AMA on r/fantasy on October 8, 2015.
Speaking of full circle, here’s the second piece of big news: as of this past week, I am back working at BioWare again! For those who don’t know, I spent over a decade with BioWare working on many award winning and fan-beloved games like Mass Effect 1&2, Knights of the Old Republic and the Star Wars: The Old Republic Online MMO. A few years ago I left BioWare to focus on my Chaos Born novels, but now that the trilogy is finished, I’ve decided to come back into the fold. But for those of you who love my novels, don’t worry – I’ll still be writing more of those, too!
