Chris Avellone leaves Obsidian Entertainment

The end of Era
Wish him the best though.

"It is true, Bertie," he wrote, "and many well wishes to the folks at Obsidian. On the future, I'm off to pursue new projects, but I can't say anything more at this time beyond life is short, and the ideas keep growing."

Avellone, a writer and game designer of many years, helped found Obsidian Entertainment in 2003. He was one of many former Black Isle staff who made a new home there.
Avellone was creative director at Obsidian, instrumental in everything it turned out, including Knights of the Old Republic 2, Fallout: New Vegas and Pillars of Eternity.
But his career was celebrated long before then, he having been game director of revered RPG Planescape: Torment way back when.
Chris Avellone was instrumental in helping me organise, and being a part of, a chunky Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2 post-mortem, and a Planescape: Torment post-mortem podcast.
