Melo worked as a senior producer on Dragon Age: Origins and Dragon Age 2 before becoming director of online development in 2011. In 2015, he left the role to work on the online portion of Mass Effect: Andromeda, and was later made lead producer on the next Dragon Age game, codenamed Morrison.
Melo said he wanted “time to disconnect and explore a couple ideas for next chapter in my career”.
In a parting email to his BioWare Edmonton colleagues, which you can see in the tweet thread above, Melo said Morrison was “well underway to becoming the definitive Dragon Age experience”.
“I’m incredibly proud and honoured to have played a part in that. I’ll be eagerly awaiting the opportunity to experience the next Dragon Age as a fan this time around.”
Last month, a short story collection all but confirmed the setting for the next Dragon Age game.
