An email sent to staff from BioWare general manager Gary McKay has revealed that Dragon Age 4 has lost its Senior Creative Director, Matt Goldman.

Hi everyone,

I hope you are well. I’m writing to inform you all that Matt Goldman is leaving BioWare. We have mutually agreed to part ways, and his last day is today.

We understand that Matt’s departure has an impact on you, as well as the game’s development. Rest assured our commitment to a high-quality Dragon Age game has not waivered, and we will not ship a game that is not up to BioWare’s standards.

We, including EA’s executive team, have absolute confidence in the leadership here at the studio and the people working on this game to carry forward our vision.

His reason for departure is unknown. Goldman has been with BioWare for 23 years and worked on the Dragon Age games and other titles such as Baldur’s Gate, Neverwinter Nights, and Jade Empire. He succeeded Mike Laidlaw in 2017 for Dragon Age 4. His replacement is unknown, but EA has expressed support for the team at BioWare.

Matt Goldman is no longer working at BioWare. He leaves the next Dragon Age game in excellent hands, with the team here at the studio who will carry forward our vision for the game.

The game has been in development for years but little has been shared. A release date has never been announced, but a few details have been released over the last year or two.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
