BioWare senior creative director Mike Laidlaw announced today on Twitter that he is leaving the studio after 14 years.

It is only appropriate that in his letter to the public that he ends it with a popular Elven endearment from the Dragon Age series, "Ma Serannas", which means "My thanks/thank you". It looks like the party is over and they're taking away the balloons at BioWare tonight. He's worked on games like Jade Empire, Mass Effect, Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood, and the aforementioned Dragon Age series, and many thought he was helming the all-but-announced fourth game in the main Dragon Age series. It's been an honor to be part of the Dragon Age team, and I have every confidence that the world we've created together is in good hands and I'm excited for the road ahead.

He hasn't detailed the reason for his departure, nor what job he'll be moving on to next.

He doesn't get specific about any future plans, other than a desire to play some "amazing games" that his peers have created over the past few years. You've made my time "in Thedas" fantastic. One wonders if Guns N' Roses' "14 Years" will be playing throughout the BioWare office. Laidlaw also has a Twitch account, which he references in his goodbye message, so it looks like he will spend time streaming and connecting with fans.
