    BioWare, the game development team praised for their compelling narrative games and addicting RPGs, has had an interesting change in pace for their upcoming game, Mass Effect: Andromeda. Details on the next entry in the Mass Effect series have been kept secret by BioWare, with the only known information being that the game will take place after the events in Mass Effect 3 and that it will take place in the Andromeda galaxy as opposed to the Milky Way galaxy like the rest of the series. The Senior Development Director at BioWare, Chris Wynn, has announced his departure from BioWare and his return to the US to "join the passionate N7 community."

    Despite his resignation from BioWare, Wynn went on to praise the team behind Andromeda for being "the most talented team that [Wynn] has ever worked with." He continued, saying that it was "truly inspiring to have worked with [the team] each and every day." The exact details of Wynn leaving BioWare is not known, nor is it known how this will affect the development of Mass Effect: Andromeda.

    Though BioWare is known for their ingenuity in their massive popular game series, Dragon Age and Mass Effect, the loss of someone so high up in their development team could have a major impact on the production of Mass Effect: Andromeda. Chris Wynn's reasons for leaving BioWare have yet to be stated, but if that information is released, there will be some telling insight as to how the production of Mass Effect: Andromeda is going behind the scenes.

    Looks like there won't be any more Mass Effect games.

    My wife can't wait for this game. I never did get into Mass Effect. I did play the first one but just didn't really like it. I did however get super hooked on Bioware's other game, Dragon Age. Anyways, I'm sure my wife will be pretty shocked about Wynns leaving. Great article Feyfey.

      Yeah, I watch Samie play a lot when I was on the computer and I think the third one is what kept having me glance over. I'll have to try it again before I die.

    Seems like quite a few people have been leaving companies lately.

      May have something to do with the incoming virtual reality gen?

      Could be but I haven't heard of most the companies going in that direction yet.

    Hmm, would've been interesting if we were told the reason behind his sudden departure.

    Hopefully this is not another matter of someone leaving because they don't agree with what the publisher wants from the game.. Milking it and the consumer of every dollar.

      It could be. As Abaddon HD said, it doesn't seem like he left on bad terms with BW. It could be this issue lies with the publisher rather than the developer.

    this sucks but I have good faith that the mass effect series will still be as great as it ever has many years to come

    Although it seems to be that he has left on a good note I hope this doesn't become destiny and gets thrown int he disappointment bin.
