Stephen Reid No Longer With BioWare

Published by under community news on May. 23. 2012.

What was only a rumor yesterday was confirmed today, Stephen Reid was one of those affected by the layoffs at BioWare. He confirmed this morning via Twitter and Facebook that he was let go from the company, a sad state of affairs for anyone who looked to him as one of their primary sources for SWTOR info. Here is the rundown straight from the man himself, via his Twitter account-


Today my life’s next chapter starts. Lost track of how many chapters so far… but time to turn the page.

I was one of those affected by layoffs at BioWare Austin yesterday. I got to build an amazing team while I was there, and miss them already.

I’m also going to miss #SWTOR and the community we created. Sure, I know some of you hated me, but hey, I still worked hard for you. :)

I’ll be Twitter-quiet for a bit, but I’ll be back soon-ish. Doing something, somewhere, and talking about it here. I hope we keep talking.

Last but not least: I was quiet for the last couple of weeks because I was full-on devoted to #SWTOR character transfer. It’s still coming!

Now I’ve got to go, because you don’t want to see a grown man cry on Twitter. Also, I don’t know the emoticon for it. :)

Don’t lose faith. They’re still devoted to making a great game. :)

It’s a wide-open space right now. Big, full of possibilities, and scary as hell. Thanks for everything guys.


Good luck with whatever you have planned in the future Stephen, and May the Force be with you.

    Hope it works out for you Stephen. I want you to know not all of the fans share the cynicism, hate, self entitlement and disrespect that is so endemic on the forums.

    I think quite a few things could have been done better but anyone who expressed hate towards you for those reasons IS more contemptable then they THINK you are.
