Previously involved in Disney, where he oversaw the making of some games such as Cars 2 and Toy Story 3, Warner has worked for a long time in BioWare, and among his greatest successes we find Mass Effect 3 for which he was a senior producer.
His latest project was Anthem, which he was trying to relaunch with a small team of BioWare to meet fan requests and try to get back on track after a nightmare start. EA put an end to the game last month.
