BioWare loses another storyteller as Cameron Harris steps down
Senior Editor Cameron Harris will leave BioWare — and the video game industry as a whole — in April, she announced in a series of tweets on Friday. At BioWare, Harris had a hand in crafting the narratives of Dragon Age: Inquisition, Star Wars: The Old Republic and Mass Effect: Andromeda, which is due in 2017. She entered the video game industry in 2007 as a technical editor at Microsoft, and over the years she’s also worked with Nintendo and ArenaNet, according to her LinkedIn profile.
“I had a great time at BioWare, working with so many talented, passionate folks,” Harris said in a tweet. “I’m grateful for everything you taught me over the years.”
Harris is the third notable departure from BioWare this year alone. Mass Effect: Andromeda lead writer Chris Schlerf left in February to join Destiny studio Bungie, and long-time Dragon Age lead writer David Gaider exited in January.
Harris gave a talk at GDC 2014 on the importance of editors in creating strong video game stories, and we’ve embedded that presentation below.
