BioWare Co-Founders Have Been Awarded The Order Of Canada For "Revolutionary" Contributions To Gaming

Though they departed the company in 2012, BioWare co-founders Greg Zeschuk and Ray Muzyka have just received the Order of Canada, an honor that recognizes their many contributions to the video game industry.

Following highly publicized missteps like Mass Effect: Andromeda, it's easy to forget how many video games BioWare has released to acclaim from both fans and critics alike.

That said, there are still many that remember the publisher's many accomplishments, and to honor the company's work, the Canadian government has awarded BioWare co-founders Greg Zeschuk and Ray Muzyka with the Order of Canada.

As explained in the official press release (via Variety), the pair were given the Order of Canada - the nation's second highest honor - for their "revolutionary contributions to the video game industry."

These contributions, which spans the time between the company's beginning in 1995 to the duos' retirement from the industry in 2012, include games like Mass Effect, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic,  and Dragon Age.

Aside from releasing beloved titles for gamers to enjoy, BioWare is also responsible for the creation of numerous game engines, such as the Aurora Engine, which was even used by CD Projekt Red for The Witcher.
