According to a new forum post on the official Star Wars: The Old Republic site, Bioware, developers of SWTOR, is in â€œrestructuringâ€ mode, usually PR-speak for employees losing their jobs. The actual number of redundancies is not given.
Hey folks, since youâ€™re reading this you may likely have heard that weâ€™ve done some restructuring here on the SWTOR team. Sadly, we are bidding farewell to some talented, passionate and exceptionally hard-working people who helped make SWTOR a reality. Impacting peopleâ€™s lives this way is always very hard, but weâ€™re ensuring the affected people are treated with dignity, fairness and respect.
Looking back at launch, we all came together and did something historic. We executed one of the largest, most successful and stable launches of any MMO yet in industry history. That is not an easy feat for any development team or company and we are humbled and honored by our fan communityâ€™s strong support both at launch and beyond.
From exploring the new zones to hitting the instances and raids, Mists gives players a reason to repeat their journeys now more than ever before. The timed instances makes for great fun and the larger raids are challenging enough to keep guilds busy for some time.Â Add in the scenarios, the factions, farming, and other little games WoWâ€™s included in Mists and you have a lot more choice of what to do than youâ€™re used to in Azeroth.
