Mass Effect: Andromeda

Bioware Losing Another Writer

Just a few weeks after David Gaider left Bioware, Chris Schlerf – the lead writer on Mass Effect: Andromeda – has done the same.

Schlerf took to twitter to confirm his departure.

This isn’t as big of a loss as David Gaider was a few weeks back. Mass Effect: Andromeda was the only project he’d work on at Bioware since joining the company in 2014, but before that, he worked on Halo 4 for 343 Industries. As for what’s next for Schlerf. He’s already joined Bungie to write for the Destiny franchise. The man sure loves his Sci-fi. Halo to Mass Effect to Destiny. That’s what you call a pattern.

Considering that Bioware games hinge on their writing, it’s hard to say how these departures will affect the company as a whole. It’s no lie that Bioware has slowly been falling out of favor with some gamers over the past few years years, so maybe some fresh ideas will do the developer a world of difference.

While Gaider was a pretty big loss for Bioware, it seems pretty clear that Schlerf probably didn’t have much intention to stick around past his involvement with Mass Effect: Andromeda.

He’s still confident about the project, though.

Mass Effect: Andromeda is due for release Holiday 2016. We still don’t know much about the story, or anything really. We just know that it takes place in a separate galaxy, hence the name, far into the future.

Don’t ask me why it doesn’t look all that different aesthetically from the original trilogy, though.

I don’t have the answers you seek.
