BioWare confirmed the support of Star Wars: The Old Republic new developers

BioWare confirmed the dismissal in the development team of Star Wars: The Old Republic, as the game is preparing to switch to a new developer. Earlier this month, it was reported that the EA is approaching an agreement on the transfer of the current development and operation of the Bioware Mmorpg to the BroadSword Online Games Mmorpg to the Bioware Mmorpg.

The Agreement provides for the transfer of SWTOR to the current Ultima Online and Dark Age of Camelot Broadsword Online, which is controlled by the former co-founder of Mythic Entertainment and Bioware Vice President Rob Denton, who previously worked on SWTOR in the early days of its existence.

It was also reported that 70-80 people were part of the main team of The Old Republic developers, more than half of which were supposed to go to Broadsword.

In the new blog message, Gary McCay General Manager, Gary McKay, confirmed that an unsolved amount of dismissal will affect those who will not move from the studio in Broadsword.

“Large changes do not happen without problems,” said McCay. “Among them is the fact that most of the current team will be invited to accompany the game when switching to Boadsword, although, unfortunately, not all roles will go. This is the most difficult part of this transition, and these decisions were not easy. Of course, we do our best to support the affected team members who have the opportunity to find new roles in EA. In addition, we understand that the team members who are asking to move to the new studio will also adapt to changes, and we will work with Broadsword to make the transition as comfortable as possible. However, in the long run we are sure that this is the best solution for the game and its community. We will miss BioWare to be part of the SWTOR history in the future. But we also know that she will be in very good hands “.

BioWare insists that all current plans for SWTOR are in force, and new functions will be announced later.

“For example, we have just released our largest update of history in recent months and a new plot point with the update of the game 7.3: Old Wounds, which returns us to the Planet of the OSS, which we have not visited from the moment of our expansion Kotet in 2016, ”said Keat Canneg, executive producer SWTOR. “In the coming months, we will also release the update of the game 7.3.1, in which our next “Galactic season” will be. And follow the news about updating the game 7.4, where players will see the continuation of the story after the events of Old Wounds. And even more on the horizon “.
