Star Wars: The Old Republic lead designer Daniel Erickson has confirmed his departure from BioWare, after earlier updating his LinkedIn profile stating he was "actively looking for new opportunities".

Posting on Twitter Erickson said that "as part of leaving BioWare I am officially starting a twitter account for job hunt and design thoughts".

The reason for Erickson's departure hasn't been revealed, but it may be related to the BioWare Austin restructuring earlier this year.

Erickson worked at BioWare for seven years, beginning on Dragon Age.
