BioWare has announced that 9-year veteran Corey Gaspur has passed away. His credits extend across many titles from the company, including his lead designer role in the upcoming online shooter, Anthem.
Gaspur served as a gameplay/level designer at BioWare for over 9 years, credited for many triple A titles such as Mass Effect 2 and 3, Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood, Dragon Age: Origins and most DLC. Aside from design work, he also gained consultation credits for his roles in Mass Effect: Andromeda, Dragon Age: Inquisition, Star Wars Battlefront and Mirror’s Edge.
BioWare has yet to release a statement on who will step into Gaspur’s shoes on its upcoming shared-world shooter, Anthem but a statement shows that they will be big shoes to fill.
“Corey was a talented designer and an even better person. We offer our condolences to Corey’s family and everyone that knew him,” BioWare wrote. “We will miss you.”
