Formerwriter Drew Karpyshyn has returned to BioWare to take up story duties on Star Wars: The Old Republic. Having just finished his own book trilogy, , it's a natural time for Drew Karpyshyn to return to the company where he made his name.
"Working at BioWare was a challenging but very rewarding job," he writes, "and it’s good to be back as part of the team. The thing I missed most about BioWare was the amazing people I got to work with, and luckily for me many of them are still there! I suspect a lot of folks are going to wonder if this means BioWare is about to announce a new project tied to my return. The short answer: no. I originally came to the Austin studio many years ago to work on SWTOR and – at least for now – that’s what I’m focusing on again."
