Though BioWare’s Anthem just released a huge new update including the long-awaited Cataclysm, and even more updates for the horizon according to the studio, another beloved veteran of the company has announced their departure. The latest developer to move onto new projects is that of Ben Irving, Anthem’s Lead Producer.
Irving took to Twitter to announce his departure.”After 8 amazing years at BioWare I have made the decision to move on and have accepted an exciting opportunity at another gaming company. Since the first time I played Baldurs Gate many many years ago, BioWare was the dream place I always wanted to work.
“I will forever be grateful to all the people who gave me the chance to work on great products with amazing people. I believe Anthem has a bright future – there is a great team working on it and I look forward to following its progress (and playing it!) from the sidelines.”
He also added that he will definitely still be playing the game and assures active Anthem players that the online game is still in good hands. Unfortunately the announcement didn’t reveal what’s next for the respected dev, but as a personal fan of his work I wish him nothing but the best.
As for the game itself, Anthem is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
