The former Portugal striker, who signed a two-year deal on his arrival last summer, is leaving Ewood Park by mutual consent.
Gomes, 36, scored four goals in 20 appearances for Rovers, and he told the club website: "Playing for this historic club has been an absolute pleasure. Despite only being here for a year, I have enjoyed my time here immensely.
"I want to say a big thank you to Gary Bowyer, the staff, the players and, most importantly, the fans for making me feel so welcome.
"I will look out for Blackburn's results and I hope they can achieve their goal of getting back into the Premier League."
Boss Bowyer said: "Nuno is a model professional, who has been a fantastic influence on the younger players at the club and has been a pleasure to work with.
"I fully understand that at this stage in his career he wants to play regular football, but unfortunately I can't give him those guarantees."
