You might not know them by name, but Greg Zeschuk and Ray Muzyka are the co-founders of BioWare. Both men have announced their retirement not just from BioWare, which they founded close to 20 years ago, but from their positions at Electronic Arts.
On top of this, they're also heading out of the game industry completely. Muzyka is entering philanthropy, with Zeschuk heading into craft brewing. Muzyka took to his blog, where the now ex-game developer reflected on his years in the industry:
It's not often that you can truly say you were able to pursue and achieve your dream job; I know how lucky I am to be able to say that now, in my early 40s.
Building BioWare over the years with Ray and the many other people involved was a once in a lifetime opportunity, and I'll cherish it always.
