BioWare founders receive Order of Canada


Recommended Posts




Two Edmonton men are receiving one of Canada's top honours and any fans of video games will likely know their names.


Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk, co-founders of the internationally successful video-game software company BioWare, are among the 103 Canadians appointed this year to the Order of Canada.


The recipients were announced Thursday by the office of Gov.-Gen. Julie Payette.


Zeschuk didn't believe it at first when he got the call.


"It was shocking," he told CBC News. "We just try to do great stuff and try and help people and try and work with great people and build things, and to be recognized for that is really an amazing honour."


These days, Zeschuk owns the Blind Enthusiasm Brewing Company and the Biera gastropub in Edmonton's Ritchie neighbourhood. Muzyka mentors entrepreneurs in information technology, health-tech and medical innovation industries through his company ThresholdImpact.
