When BioWare decided to start a new, secret project, it figured that the best person for the job would be none other than Senior BioWare Writer, David Gaider.

Polygon reports that the Dragon Age series' lead writer, David Gaider, announced on Twitter that he was moving on from the franchise and will be writing for a secret, new BioWare project. If you've never heard of the game Dragon Age you must be living under a rock. Its latest title, Dragon Age: Inquisition, has gained an extreme amount of press and praise this year and, frankly, it deserved it. This leaves us wondering how Dragon Age will be without Gaider's solid writing.

"I have decided [to] leave Dragon Age and move onto a new, upcoming BioWare project (which I can't discuss). While it's hard to leave Dragon Age behind, 10 years is a long time to work on any one project. I decided it was time for something new," Gaider tweeted.

While Dragon Age will remain in capable hands with Patrick Weekes, another BioWare writer, it's hard to forget how much Gaider has done for the series. Throughout the three different games of the series, Gaider has written character dialogue, quests and helped craft the series' overarching story. Weekes is known for writing the Dragon Age: The Masked Empire spin-off novel and part of the Mass Effect: Homeworlds comic series. We're hoping that Gaider will help bring Mass Effect 4 to life.
