Mac Walters requires little introduction to Mass Effect fans, having helped write the scripts for all of the Mass Effect games, including Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3, where he served as lead writer on, but it looks like he’s moving on to other things. In a new post on his LinkedIn page, Walters revealed that he will be leaving BioWare, a company that he has been working at for 19 years. There doesn’t seem to be any indication as to where Walters is headed yet, but the veteran suggested that he was looking for “new adventures.”

From a LinkedIn post:

As some of you already know, at the end of last year I decided to leave BioWare. These past 19 years have been a life-changing experience to say the least, and it made the choice to go very difficult. I’ve worked with so many wonderful people and had the privilege to be a part of the most amazing teams and projects. It’s hard to fathom it all, and I know I’ll be reflecting on it for years to come.

Thank you to everyone I’ve had the joy of working with, and I wish everyone at BioWare the very best in everything you do. It’s truly been a pleasure.

Walters joined BioWare in September 2003. His first writing project was Jade Empire, a martial arts RPG that was released for the Xbox in April 2005, followed by the first Mass Effect, which released in 2007. Walters also served as the project director and creative director for Mass Effect: Legendary Edition and Mass Effect: Andromeda, respectively.
