It is only appropriate that in his letter to the public that he ends it with a popular Elven endearment from the Dragon Age series, "Ma Serannas", which means "My thanks/thank you".
When BioWare fans bring up extraordinary, captivating writing, they always go back to the original Mass Effect. Laidlaw was a driving behemoth of that. In his post, he states that even though "it's with a mix of emotions, its time for him to move on". He's worked on games like Jade Empire, Mass Effect, Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood, and the aforementioned Dragon Age series, and many thought he was helming the all-but-announced fourth game in the main Dragon Age series.
"It's been an honor to be a part of the Dragon Age team", he said in his statement. For now, he says he wants to spend some time "reconnecting with all the unbelievable games and worlds [his] peers have created", and he plans to share those experiences on Twitch and Twitter. Your passion inspires and I look forward to our next adventures together. In 2015, Dragon Age: Inquisition won two NAVGTR Awards, Game of the Year and Game Design, Franchise, and was nominated for Game, Franchise Role Playing.
