It is only appropriate that in his letter to the public that he ends it with a popular Elven endearment from the Dragon Age series, "Ma Serannas", which means "My thanks/thank you".
Laidlaw says that he's been lucky to work with so many talented and hardworking people, and that he looks forward to seeing where the studio takes the Dragon Age universe in the future. He didn't mention a reason for leaving other than that it is time to move on, even as his exit follows DA:I lead writer David Gaider, who left the company early a year ago. In the above statement, Laidlaw says he plans to spend time "reconnecting with all the awesome games and worlds that [his] peers have created".
To everyone who's taken the time to share feedback and experiences, your fantastic cosplays and artistic creations: thank you. Your passion inspires and I look forward to our next adventures together. One wonders if Guns N' Roses' "14 Years" will be playing throughout the BioWare office. He also worked on the Mass Effect series, but his legacy at the studio is firmly tied to the Dragon Age franchise, for which he was originally the lead designer before becoming the senior creative director.
Laidlaw was nominated for a 2010 BAFTA Games Award for Best Story in Dragon Age: Origins along with Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk.
