Former Dragon Age boss Mike Laidlaw joins Assassin's Creed Odyssey Studio - Eurogamer.net

Mike Laidlaw, former head of BioWare's Dragon Age series, works as a creative director for a new project at Ubisoft Quebec.

You know Ubisoft Quebec as the studio that led the development of this year's brilliant Assassin's Creed Odyssey, and the pleasant Assassin's Creed Syndicate from London.

It is a fascinating step. Quebec's Odyssey is a massive Assassin & # 39; s Creed role-playing game, clearly influenced by BioWare. It has a main character that is shaped by your choices, missions with different branched story paths and the ability to connect with other characters that are found in the game.

And now one of BioWare's most prominent former employees is working directly on what Ubisoft Quebec is building next.

Laidlaw worked for almost a decade with Dragon Age, as lead designer on Dragon Age 1, later as creative director and overseer of the entire Dragon Age franchise at later rates. Previously, Laidlaw had worked for many years as a leadwriter on other BioWare games such as Jade Empire.
