I had an enormous privilege to walk the halls of Bioware, Austin development studio in its best days. All the razzle dazzle aside (so much cool stuff could be seen) there was one thing that made me feel certain we are going to have an amazing game on our hands. It was all the hard working people there producing diligently worlds of Star Wars: The Old Republic. We were walking by one of the rooms and there were world designers placing various objects onto one of the planets right at the moment we were passing by. I thought to myself – my character will be running around there in no time.

Yesterday, we learned that a lot of the people have been hit by a wave of layoffs (Click to read the announcement by Bioware foudners). On behalf of SWTOR Life and its staff I wanted to extend my best wishes to all those affected. Thank you for all your hard work and trying to give us fans the best game possible.

    It’s always sad to see people getting laid off. It’s sadder still when people take the story and use it as a club against fans of a game, proudly embracing the loss of a person’s income as “the end of your game lololol”.

    Exactly Kael. Many people have valid (and not so valid) problems with the game (I know I have a few), but never was I invested or misanthropic enough to wish people would loose their jobs over it like I saw expressed multiple times.
