Ex-BioWare veteran, Mark Darrah, is well-known in the BioWare community, having worked for the company for over two decades before leaving alongside Casey Hudson. As of now, though, it seems he has returned to join the Dragon Age Dreadwolf team as a consultant.
GamesBeat broke the news with a statement from BioWare declaring their dedication to developing Dreadwolf further. Meanwhile, the small core Mass Effect team works on the pre-production phase of the next spacefaring adventure.
Darrah’s role in all this is mostly to ensure Dragon Age: Dreadwolf strikes a balance between offering up a new, modern experience while respecting and understanding the monolithic legacy the previous entries left behind. BioWare General Manager Gary McKay appears to be excited about this ex-BioWare veteran returning, even if it’s only for a consultant position.
