James Ohlen has been with BioWare for an incredibly long time: 22 years. It was the lead designer the original Baldur's Gate and has also worked in games like Neverwinter Nights, Knights of the Old Republic, Jade Empire, Dragon Age: Origins, Star Wars: The Old Republic and Mass Effect: Andromeda. He also worked on Anthem. His announcement really marked the end of an era.

Ohlen has not exaggerated in wanting to take a break and understand what to do next. We hope that a great mind like him can soon find some other jobs, always in the videogame sector, even if we do not have much doubt about it.
