Legendary games designer Chris Avellone has parted ways with Obsidian Entertainment.

The creator broke the news over on his personal Twitter account:

“I have officially left Obsidian Entertainment to accept a sudden opening as the Defence Against the Dark Arts Professor at Hogwarts.”

He followed up with a more serious clarification:

(The first part is serious, but much love and well wishes to my fellow devs, good folks one and all.)

We don’t know what’s in store for the designer, but we’re sure that he’ll be working on something new, soon. Perhaps that Van Buren game that InXile has been stowing away for later?
