BioWare is known for their stories, from the magical world of Dragon Age: Inquisition to the space-faring scenes the of Star Wars and Mass Effect. One of the people responsible for these tales of adventure is senior editor, Cameron Harris. That is until April when she will leave BioWare.
In a series of tweets, Harris announced that she would be leaving the video game industry for “new opportunities”. Entering the video game in 2007, Harris has worked for everyone from Microsoft to Nintendo and ArenaNet but is clearly looking for something a little different.
In her tweets, Harris thanked everyone at BioWare for everything they’ve taught her, followed by everyone in the games industry as a whole and then thanking everyone who was a fan while she did her “games thang”.
This isn’t the first time someone’s left BioWare, and the third time this year alone. Previously Dragon Age’s lead writer, David Gaider, left in January followed by the lead writer for Mass Effect’s latest game, Mass Effect: Andromeda, Chris Schlerf in February.
Yet another great writer leaves the industry. I personally love the games where every minute you play drags you into their world more and more, with you eventually hating the bad guy and wishing you could have saved everyone from their fates. We wish Harris all the best in her future pursuits and hope she understands how much her tales have helped shape our smiles and lives.
Its been on the cards for a while that Apple has been looking at making a car. They’ve even gone so far as to invoke the wrath of Elon Musk by taking in staff straight from Tesla. The Apple Car project hasnot been shown off to the public yet, but it’s already caught people’s attention, it would seem to be in trouble though with the lead behind the project leaving the company.
Steve Zadesky, an employee with an impressive 16 years at Apple, is said to have been running the secret project behind the companies exploration into vehicles for two years; Zadesky is departing from the company for personal reasons.
Zadesky started for Apple in 1999 and has worked on their first iPod’s and iPhones, meaning he has been there to see some of their greatest moments. With a recent expansion for the electric car project, offering to triple their staff from 600 to almost two thousand, the projects green light for 2019 looks to be getting closer and closer.
This latest revelation could be yet another to a long line of knocks that the project has taken, with reports coming in that they have not only had trouble laying out goals for the project but that they have been given “ambitious deadlines” which the teams involved feel might not be attainable.
People leaving companies can come for various reasons, personal or professional, but the biggest threat is that leaders of projects and experts in their areas leave when the project is at its most vulnerable. If the information is correct we wish Zadesky the best in the future and look forward to seeing Apple’s progress with this project.
