BioWare cofounders retire, move onto beer, other projects

BioWare co-founders Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk announced their retirement today on the BioWare blog.  The studio’s first big success was the Baldur’s Gate franchise, followed by Neverwinter Nights, and, later, the Mass Effect and Dragon Age franchises.

Muzyka plans to invest and mentor other entrepreneurs, while Zeschuk will be working on showcasing incredible beers. 

The main project I will be working on is a web-based interview show called The Beer Diaries where I interview notable brewers and showcase their beers. If things go well, I’ll work on other beer-related shows, apps and projects. If not, I’ll have drunk a lot of tasty beers and may be back in games or even something else completely different. Ultimately, time will tell.
