 Mass Effect  lead Casey Hudson has left BioWare
Mass Effect lead Casey Hudson has left BioWare
August 7, 2014 | By Alex Wawro

Mass Efffect executive producer Casey Hudson has left BioWare to pursue new opportunities after nearly 16 years with the studio, according a post on the company blog.

The post contains a letter written by Hudson to his fellow developers, in which he states: "I have decided to hit the reset button and move on from BioWare. Iíll take a much needed break, get perspective on what I really want to do with the next phase of my life, and eventually, take on a new set of challenges."

This is notable because Hudson oversaw development of all three major Mass Effect games, most recently serving as producer of Mass Effect 3 in 2012. He later laid out some of the challenges the team faced in shipping that game during an interview with Gamasutra.

Hudson was involved with development on the next Mass Effect game before his departure from BioWare. Gamasutra has reached out for more information about his departure, and we'll update this story with any meaningful new information.

Mass Effect is one of my favorite gaming series, so it's sad to see a veteran like Casey Hudson leave. Im sure he will do bigger and better things!

He is also one of two individuals (the other being Mac Walters) mainly responsible for the absolute horrid ending of ME3. I don't think he ever really bounced back from that mistake. Apart from that I have the impression he did a good job while at Bioware, but that is just my personal impression. Hope he finds ground and does well in the future. I can't say the same about Mac however, as he ripped Karpyshyns concept to shreds, in order to leave his own very personal mark. And that he did in spades.
