Chris Avellone, the writer, storyteller, and game designer behind many of Obsidian Entertainment's titles, has left the studio. The news was announced via Twitter in jocular fashion, though Avellone confirms his departure is legitimate.

Avellone has also updated his LinkedIn profile to indicate the departure. In addition to his work at Obsidian, Avellone teamed up with inXile for Wasteland 2 and the in-development Torment: Tides of Numenara. He also appeared in Wayside Creations' Fallout web series, Fallout: Nuka Break.

Avellone has not yet disclosed what's next for his career.
