He's leaving BioWare Montreal and heading back to the United States, though he didn't say anything further about his exact future plans.

BioWare issued a statement to Game Informer about Wynn's departure.

"Chris was a great member of the team," a BioWare representative told the site. "We want to thank him for his contributions and we wish him the best in his new adventures. Development of Mass Effect Andromeda continues to move full speed ahead at BioWare Montreal, Edmonton and Austin."

According to his LinkedIn profile, Wynn joined BioWare in July 2013 as a senior development director. Before that, he worked at Electronic Arts (development director), Epic Games (senior producer), and Microsoft (lead producer).

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