BioWare’s Jonathan Warner has announced that he has left the studio, moving on after nearly a decade at the developer. He hasn’t said what he’s going to be doing next, instead only stating that he’s “moving on to do new things.” Whether or not that means he will still be in the games industry remains to be seen.

Warner was most recently the director of Anthem. The looter shooter was met with criticism upon launch, and did not perform as well commercially as EA had hoped, quickly losing its playerbase owing to a lack of post-launch updates and a similar lack of necessary fixes to the base game. BioWare was working on an overhaul of the game dubbed Anthem Next, but that was recently officially canned by EA.

Prior to Anthem, Warner was also the game director on Mass Effect Andromeda, before which he served as producer on Mass Effect 3 and its post-launch content. Since May 2019, he had also been BioWare’s chief of staff.
