According to its LinkedIn page, Warner’s most recent position in BioWare was Chief of Staff. He was also the game director at BioWares Anthem, which struggled to find an audience. BioWare recently canceled plans to revive the game and instead move on to new projects.
Before that he was a game director for almost six years at BioWare, and before that he was a senior producer on Mass Effect 3.
Prior to joining EA and BioWare, Warner worked for The Walt Disney Company for seven years, contributing to games such as Cars 2, Toy Story 3, Meet the Robinsons, Chicken Little and Dragon Ball Z.
Warner is not the only longtime employee of a prominent gaming studio to announce his resignation, as 10-year-old Assassin’s Creed author Darby McDevitt also leaves Ubisoft.
