Report: BioWare Honcho Leaving Star Wars: Old Republic Studio

Tattoos are forever! Well, sorta. Gigs at game companies? Less so. BioWare co-founder Greg Zeschuk has apparently left BioWare Austin, the studio behind the beleaguered MMO Star Wars: The Old Republic.

According to Zeschuk's LinkedIn page, he lists his BioWare Austin position as "past", seeming to indicate that he has left the post.

The move seems to have been a long while coming. EA says that Zeschuk planned back in May to return to his family in Edmonton "for a much deserved vacation". Fair enough! Apparently, his successor, former Major League Gaming GEO Matt Bromberg, was also picked to run BioWare Austin at this time.

"Greg is still with EA. He's now back in Canada, taking time off and thinking about new projects," added EA (via Eurogamer). New projects, huh?
