Greg Zeschuk Leaves SWTOR, Stays in Bioware

Published by under Breaking News on Aug. 10. 2012.

There was a rumor floating around that one of the good doctors that founded Bioware has left after SWTOR layoffs in May. This has been denied by EA staff. Now, Eurogamer and Gamasutra are reporting that there was a change in roles, not as drastic as one of the founders leaving the company though.

Dr. Greg Zeschuk stepped down from the position of General Manager for Star Wars: The Old Republic in May and is now in Edmonton with his family taking a well deserved break. In an email to Gamasutra he said the following:

With regard to BioWare Austin, I handed off the leadership of the studio to Matthew Bromberg quite some time ago (back in May). Ray [Muzyka, BioWare co-founder] and I picked Matthew to take over and he’s been doing a great job with the studio.

My time in Austin was always planned to have a finite endpoint (my family was still living in Edmonton throughout my time in Austin) and now that I’ve handed the baton to Matt, I will be able to spend more time on a wider range of BioWare games rather than focusing on just one as I did with SWTOR.”

While he was working on SWTOR Dr. Greg spent most of his time in Austin, Texas, while his family remained back in Canada. I would like to thank the good doctor for all he did for the game and the sacrifices he made so we would be able to play it one day.

Well, we need to sell 10 million units. That’s actually the new target, right? We do Top 10 games, our stuff is quite successful.

We always joke that if we only do half as well as Blizzard on Star Wars: The Old Republic, we’ll be quite satisfied. We’ve been very fortunate. I always joke about that, but…
