Mass Effect gameplay design lead jumps to Riot

Mass Effect 2 and 3 lead gameplay designer is with BioWare no more. Christina Norman, who you may remember as the narrator of Mass Effect 2‘s class videos, left the developer at the end of last month for a lead designer position at League of Legends studio Riot Games.

“I am thankful for my experience working on the Mass Effect series at BioWare, and think that Mass Effect 3 is going to be the best game in the series,” Norman told Gamasutra.

“I’m looking forward to working with Riot on innovative new approaches to game design and game development in the rapidly-changing video game market.”

Norman’s final BioWare effort, Mass Effect 3, launches in March 2012. Filling her role at the studio is Mass Effect 1 and 2 lead designer Preston Watamaniuk.
