BioWare Game Designer Corey Gaspur Has Passed Away
In a short blog post from BioWare yesterday, the company revealed that developer Corey Gaspar had passed away after working there for more than 9 years.
Gaspar contributed to a number of BioWare titles -- including Sonic Chronicles, Dragon Age: Origins, and Mass Effect 2-3. Most recently, he worked on BioWare's newest IP, Anthem, as the Lead Designer. Before his employment at BioWare, Gaspar also worked on Turok (2008) as part of Propaganda Games.
At the end of the blog post, BioWare said:
Corey was a talented designer and an even better person. We offer our condolences to Corey’s family and everyone that knew him.
As of the time of writing, it's unknown what the cause of Gaspar's death actually was. There has been some speculation on the subject, but nothing concrete thus far.
Our thoughts and condolences go out to Gaspar's family, and to the fans and development teams who will doubtlessly be missing his talented contributions.
