The Mass Effect Andromeda development team has lost a senior staffer. Lead writer Chris Schlerf confirmed on Twitter today that he's left BioWare to join Destiny developer Bungie. Schlerf had been with BioWare for almost two years, according to his LinkedIn page. Before BioWare, be worked at 343 Industries on Halo 4.

Schlerf's LinkedIn page contains some possible hints at the direction Andromeda, which he described in his tweets as a game that will "blow people away," may take.

One of his duties included: "Expansion of traditional BioWare storytelling tools and techniques into new areas leveraging increased player choice and agency, in-world narrative, and asynchronous storytelling."

At the end of 2015, another high-ranking Andromeda developer, senior producer Chris Wynn, left BioWare. He has since joined H1Z1 developer Daybreak Games.

Andromeda launches in fall 2016 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. A new teaser trailer (below) was released in November.
