Star Wars: The Old Republic Executive Producer Leaves BioWare, Other Layoffs Reported

Star Wars: The Old Republic executive producer Rich Vogel has left developer BioWare amid a wave of layoffs, Gamasutra reports today.

Rumors have also been swirling on Twitter and message boards that other staff at BioWare Austin, the studio behind The Old Republic, have been laid off as well.

This could be part of a layoff plan that BioWare announced two months ago. Membership has struggled for the sci-fi massively multiplayer online role-playing game, which lost 400,000 subscribers earlier this year. BioWare has reportedly considered making Star Wars: The Old Republic a free-to-play game.
