BioWare co-founders Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuck have retired from the company. In blog posts released on BioWare’s official site, both men explained how they came to the decision and what they’ll be moving on to next.
“After nearly two decades in video games, I’ve decided to move on to pursue an entirely different set of challenges,” Muzyka wrote. “This has been an incredibly difficult decision to make; after thinking about it for many months, I made the decision to retire from video games back in early April 2012 – at that time I provided six months’ notice to EA, to help enable a solid transition for my teams at BioWare.” “After nearly twenty years working at BioWare I’ve decided it’s time to move on and pursue something new,” Zeschuk said separately. “This decision isn’t without significant pain and regret, but it’s also something I know I need to do, for myself and my family. I’ve reached an unexpected point in my life where I no longer have the passion that I once did for the company, for the games, and for the challenge of creation.”
