Jennifer Hepler was working on sequel Dragon Age: Inquisition but is quitting BioWare this week to go freelance, in large part thanks to threats she and others of the team received in the wake of Dragon Age II’s release.
Well, this is sad. I wish her the best of luck, and thank her for all the wonderful work she shared with us.
As I’m sure a lot of you avoid doing anyway, don’t read the comments. As per usual, the assholes of the internet are rearing their ugly heads and are saying some very awful, triggering things.
Looking at how vitriolic the responses to this case even now, in the comments of this very article, I can definitely see the cancer. And it certainly isn’t Hepler by a long shot. Stern and curt criticism is one thing, but since when threatening people’s family and children is an acceptable form of that?!! FFS
*Sigh* All the best to her in her future endeavours. She wrote the parts I enjoyed most in DA:O (dwarves, maaaan), so her absence in future installments will be felt.
the ends do not justify the means
