Greg Zeschuk stands down as BioWare Austin GM

BioWare co-founder Greg Zeschuk has stood down from his role as general manager of BioWare Austin, it has been confirmed.

Speaking to Gamasutra, Zeschuk said he was taking a more broader role within BioWare.


Major League Gaming CEO Matt Bromberg has taken over in the GM role, handpicked by Zeschuk and his counterpart Ray Muzyka.

"My time in Austin was always planned to have a finite endpoint (my family was still living in Edmonton throughout my time in Austin)," said Zeschuk in an email conversation with Gama, "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."

German site GamersGlobal (via Videogamer) had said earlier Zeschuk had apparently "not been sighted" in weeks. It was also reported both Zeschuk and Muzyka skipped a recent company meeting.

The supposed news comes after it was recently announced that SWTOR would fully go F2P this autumn, less than a year after it released. It partially went F2P last month.
