Rumor: Greg Zeschuk Leaves BioWare Austin [UPDATE]

Co-founder Moves to More General Role at BioWare

A rumor that began at German website GamersGlobal, indicates that the co-founder of BioWare, Greg Zeschuk, has left the company.

No official confirmation has been gained as of publishing, with some citing Zeschuk's LinkedIn profile - which indicates that he stepped down as general manager of BioWare Austin in May - as evidence that the rumor holds water.

Chris Priestly, BioWare Edmonton community manager, made a quick response on the BioWare forum stating "False."


With the recent reports on SWTOR's declining subscription numbers, it is no surprise that the rumors have gained traction so quickly,

We have reached out to BioWare representatives to get further information and we will update this story as soon as we get it.


Gamasutra is reporting that Greg Zeschuk has not left BioWare and has instead taken on a more general role. The report quotes an email sent from Zeschuk earlier this month:

"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."
