Longtime BioWare designer James Ohlen left the studio in July 2018, after 22 years and credits on games ranging from Baldur’s Gate to Anthem. His departure came shortly after that of writer Drew Karpyshyn, who’d been with BioWare for nearly as long—his first credit is as a writer and editor on the Baldur’s Gate 2 manual—and who left, for the second time, a few months earlier. Now they’re back together again at Ohlen’s new studio, Archetype Entertainment.

“I’m proud to announce that I’m the lead writer for Archetype Entertainment!” Karpyshyn wrote on his blog. “Founded by James Ohlen—the creative genius behind BioWare hits like Baldur’s Gate, KOTOR and Dragon Age—Archetype is a new video game studio under the Wizards of the Coast umbrella… and I haven’t been this excited to work on a project in a long, long time! (Side note: I’ve always enjoyed working with WotC; they even published my first novel!)”
