Zeschuk's Changing BioWare Role

A report in German from earlier this week noted that the LinkedIn profile of Greg Zeschuk lists his position as "Co-Founder, BioWare," but also lists the company as one of his previous employers. They also noted that Zeschuk and fellow cofounder Ray Muzyka had not been present at a recent company meeting, but followed this up concluding it should be considered a "mere rumor" after EA gave them the following statement: "When Greg Zeschuk announced the reorganization of BWA in May, he outlined his plan to return to his family in Edmonton for a much deserved vacation. Greg also announced the new GM of BioWare Austin and SWTOR, Matt Bromberg. Greg is still with EA. He’s now back in Canada, taking time off and thinking about new projects. No change with Ray Muzyka." This resurfaced overnight as Eurogamer reported Zeschuk "resigned his post as General Manager of BioWare Austin." Gamasutra has a follow-up directly from Zeschuk:

"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."

Zeschuk is the guy who insisted on making SWTOR a clone of WOW.

I wonder if he reads them, or if it's just for show.

Don't worry, EA buying Bioware will have no affect on the company!

This is not surprising at all, I know Greg, I used to send him emails about SWTOR and at times he would reply but in the past 6 months, he stop replying back to me about the game. I kind of got the feeling that he or they at BW or EA were getting to the point of I don’t care anymore.

So this does not surprise me one bit. And why the game is now going free. Greg failed to deliver on the game and now he looks like shit to the rest of BW and EA. He’s probably in some kind of mental melt down which is why he’s taking time off.

Yeah Zeschuk only popped down to Austin to make sure the women and children got to the lifeboats first. No surprise that he's heading back to the mothership.

Flee the sinking ship down in Austin before he goes down with it. Writing is sadly on the wall for Bioware.

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