Charles Boyd, the former Lead Writer at Bioware Austin has been given a new title “Lead Designer – Creative on Star Wars: The Old Republic”. According to Dreamsteep.com a ‘Lead Designer – Creative’ is essentially:
An individual who works on the overall conceptualization and design of a media project.
Ian was previously a part of the SWTOR writing team contributing to Imperial flashpoint stories involving Darth Malgus, the Republic Makeb story and the creator for Thana Vesh (Imperial Taris planetary story arc). You can see more of his contributions to SWTOR listed here by Darth _Wicked.
I for one, am looking forward to seeing what Ian contributes to the new story! What do you think of this new development? Are you happy to see Ian back working on SWTOR’s story?
