After working at the Vancouver-based BioWare studio, Anthem Director Jonathan Warner is moving on, he announced on Twitter. Warner also served as Chief of Staff during his tenure with the studio.
Warner announced his departure on Friday and mentioned he was “moving on to do new things,” but gave no inclination on where he’d end up next.
So, today is my last day at BioWare, I’m moving on to do new things.
BioWare has been home to my grateful heart for nearly 10 years and I want to wish them all the best. DA ME and SWTOR are in good hands and I can’t wait to play from this side of the screen. #ThankYou #BioWare pic.twitter.com/g5zp7hkSV5

“BioWare has been home to my grateful heart for nearly 10 years and I want to wish them all the best,” he wrote. “[Dragon Age, Mass Effect] and [Star Wars: The Old Republic] are in good hands and I can’t wait to play from this side of the screen.”
Joining the studio in 2012 as a Senior Producer on Mass Effect, he eventually moved into a directorial role and helped get Anthem off the ground, a title that has plagued the studio after being a less-than-stellar offering from BioWare. A revamped version of the game, titled Anthem NEXT was in development for some time. but EA pulled the plug back in February.
