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.

The MMO market is fine, and there's still plenty of people paying for subscriptions.
In this day and people still do that?? Who are these suckers of which you speak?

There's millions of people playing WoW, still over a million in TOR last I heard, Rift has a large playerbase, EVE has subscriptions, TERA, The Secret World, and a lot of the games people talk about being free to play have them too.

Hell, how many people have Xbox Live subscriptions? 10 million? Not a lot of difference there, either.

I realize it wasn't a serious question, but the idea that free to play is everything is like saying people only buy iPhones. They're popular as hell and all anyone talks about, but it isn't the whole market or even close to it... and most of those free to play games aren't free anyway.
