Dragon Age 4’s creative director has left BioWare

The senior creative director at Dragon Age 4, Matt Goldman, has left BioWare. He had been senior creative director at Dragon Age since 2017.

As reported by Kotaku, Goldman’s departure from BioWare was announced in a recent staff email written by the studio’s General Manager Gary McKay. In the email, McKay explains that the creative director has agreed to leave the developer after the two parties “mutually [agreed] to be separated. ”

“I’m writing to inform you all that Matt Goldman is leaving BioWare,” McKay said in the email. “We mutually agree to divorce, and his last day is today.”

“We understand that Matt’s departure has an impact on you, as well as the development of the game,” the email continued. “Please be assured that our commitment to a high quality Dragon Age game has not been waived and we will not ship a game that does not live up to BioWare standards.”

EA has since confirmed to Kotaku that Goldman has left the company. “Matt Goldman no longer works for BioWare,” the publisher said in a statement. “He leaves the next Dragon Age game in excellent hands, with the team here in the studio who will continue our vision for the game.”

Goldman originally began working in the studio in 1998 when he worked as an artist on a number of BioWare games, including Baldur’s Gate and previous contributions to the Dragon Age series. After working on Halo Wars in Microsoft’s Ensemble Studios, Goldman returned to BioWare and in 2017 was named the role of senior creative director at Dragon Age 4.

While Goldman’s graduation may be the most recent, he is not the first notable figure to have left BioWare in recent memory. Last December, former general manager Casey Hudson and Dragon Age executive producer Mark Darrah both parted ways with the studio. In February, EA CEO Andrew Wilson was eager to reassure investors that BioWare still had a bright future ahead.

“I think some lightning has come in from the outside world [BioWare’s] delivery over the last few years, but it has come as a result of them pushing deep into innovation and creativity and we feel very, very confident in their future roadmap, “he said at the time.

Goldman’s successor in the study has not yet been confirmed by EA. For more on Dragon Age 4, be sure to check out this article that describes how the series owes its title (and dragons) to a random name generator.
