I wrote this on a flight from Edmonton to Amsterdam. I was on my way to a new job, back home to Sweden again.
I’m leaving BioWare behind.
There are reasons for this, and there’s no real reason why I can’t explain what happened and how it happened, but for now, I am choosing not to reveal too much publicly.
Suffice to say that the people I worked with day to day were and still are beyond lovely, smart, competent and extraordinary in many ways.
The circumstances under which I worked were not.
The people that matter to me, the friends I made and leave behind, they know why I left and what happened. You know who you are, and I love you very much. I hope things improve.
Honestly BioWare wasn’t much different from other places I’ve been, and perhaps that’s the problem.
I’m hoping that I left the company better than I found it. I’m hoping that the circumstances improve for those coming after me. Perhaps it’s arrogant to think that one person can make a difference, but at least I did my best. That’s all anyone can ever hope for.
Bye, bye BioWare.
