The Old Republic EP Leaves; Other Staff Cuts?

Rich Vogel has left BioWare, where he was serving as executive producer on Star Wars: The Old Republic, reports Gamasutra, where they say their attempts to get a comment from BioWare or EA on the reasons for this have so far been unsuccessful. They also say this news comes amid rumors of layoffs at BioWare Austin, but it is not clear whether these reports of job losses at the developer of the Star Wars MMORPG are related to the cuts announced in May, though Gamasutra adds it "understands that Vogel's departure preceded the purported layoffs." Thanks Joao.

I love how all the white knights were laughing at those of us who said this game would be F2P soon after launch.

Don't ever underestimate EA's ability to fail.

It's not even really about white-knighting. What reason did anyone have to assume it would go free to play? Warhammer flopped worse than SWTOR and years later it still isn't free to play.

Only in the last month or so have they given any indication that their approach to SWTOR regarding F2P might be different than Warhammer.

If you don't like where gaming is heading, stop giving your money to the people who are taking it in that direction.
