SWTOR Executive Producer Leaves BioWare – New Layoffs Rumored

Posted by at 12:12 pm on July 17, 2012

Star Wars: The Old Republic’s Rich Vogel is no longer with BioWare, according to a report at Gamasutra. Vogel served as SWTOR’s executive producer, and is an MMO industry veteran of 20 years on various titles, including Star Wars Galaxies, Ultima Online, and Meridian 59.

The article also mentions emerging reports that BioWare’s Austin campus is laying off workers as of this morning, though Vogel’s departure apparently precedes these new developments. It’s unclear whether the cuts are a continuation of the restructuring begun last May or a new round of layoffs.

Vogel signed on with BioWare in 2005, and most recently made headlines for a GDC 2012 presentation that highlighted SWTOR’s project management apparatus.
