Fernando Melo was the lead producer on Dragon Age 4 at Bioware and after 12 years at the company, he has now left it behind. He shared his feeling on Twitter along with the email that he sent to his colleagues at Bioware. He mentioned that leaving the company was his own decision and that he had been waiting to quit for a while. He is now going to explore some new things and the future of his career.
Melo mentioned his years at the company and talked about how he would like to experience the next Dragon Age as a fan rather than one of the team members working on the game. It would be interesting to hear his thoughts if a new title in the franchise ever came out. Here is what he had to say regarding the move from Bioware after such a long journey:
Today was my last day at BioWare. After 12 years.. that’s a heck of a lot of feels. Tonight I got to write my name up at our local pub, alongside many other amazing peers over the years, and it reminded me of a lot of folks no longer here that I miss dearly.
We have clues that Dragon Age 4 might be in the works at Bioware but there is little more that we know about the upcoming game. There is no release date or anything or the sorts. Melo might have worked on it in one form or another but there is no chance that he can talk about it. Maybe he might slip and clue or two but I am pretty sure that he cannot talk about the upcoming game.
Melo has done some incredible work at Bioware and 12 years is a very long time indeed. It will be interesting to see what he thinks about Dragon Age 4 when it comes out and what the game will be like without him as the Lead Producer.
Gamescom 2019 is around the corner and we might be able to learn something new about Dragon Age 4 at the event. That would be big news indeed. For more information regarding the game, stay tuned.
