BioWare logoBioWare has laid off an unspecified amount of employees who worked on their MMO, Star Wars: The Old Republic. The layoffs affected BioWare Austin, who were the main developers of the game. The layoffs are part of a larger "restructuring" but EA has not announced how that will take affect.
