Jonathan Warner, game director in charge of Anthem, announced his resignation on his Twitter account. "Today is my last day on the job," Warner wrote on March 26th. He did not share his plans for the future, but indicated that he was "moving on to new things" and would be happy to play BioWare games "on the other side of the screen" like a fan.
At BioWare, Warner sounded like a director of staff. In addition, a wide audience knows him as the main responsible for the development of Anthem, a shooter that has been released since 2019 on all gaming platforms. At one time, the game received mixed reviews from critics and, in the end, BioWare abandoned its plans to "revive" Anthem. In addition, Warner was one of the producers of the third part of Mass Effect.
Interestingly, prior to developing Mass Effect and Anthem, Jonathan Warner worked at Disney, where he co-created Toy Story 3, Chicken Little and Dragon Ball Z.
Also, Warner was not the only one to leave BioWare recently: Darby McDevitt, who wrote the script for the Assassin's Creed series, announced his departure after 10 years at the Ubisoft studio.
