Dragon Age 4’s Senior Creative Director Has Left BioWare

Drag­on Age senior cre­ative direc­tor Matt Gold­man has left BioWare. GM Gary McK­ay let staff know of Gold­man’s depar­ture in email (which was obtained by Kotaku). With­in the email, McK­ay stat­ed, “We have mutu­al­ly agreed to part ways, and his last day is today.”

McK­au went on, say­ing that BioWar remains com­mit­ted to mak­ing the new Drag­on Age game the best it can be, even after Gold­man’s depar­ture. “Rest assured our com­mit­ment to a high-qual­i­ty Drag­on Age game has not wavered, and we will not ship a game that is not up to BioWare’s stan­dards,” McK­ay said.

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,” McK­ay added.

No rea­son was giv­en as to why Gold­man decid­ed to leave, or where he may be head­ing next. We also don’t know who will be tak­ing over Gold­man’s position.

Gold­man first start­ed at BioWare back in 1998, spend­ing 7.5 years as the com­pa­ny’s art direc­tor for Jade Empire, Bal­dur’s Gate 2, and MDK2. He then moved on to Microsoft in 2006 to become art lead for Halo Wars, before return­ing to BioWare in 2009. He was art direc­tor on Drag­on Age: Ori­gins at that time, even­tu­al­ly being pro­mot­ed to senior cre­ative direc­tor for the entire Drag­on Age series in 2017.

A teas­er trail­er for Drag­on Age 4 was shown dur­ing the The Game Award in 2020 (above), but it’s unknown if BioWare will show any­thing new at this year’s event.

I am a Platinum lover and an ex- Cod-aholic. I've been playing games since I was 5 years old and I refuse to quit, despite my mother's attempts to get me to. God of War and its successors are my all time favorite games.
