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.

SWTOR was released five months ago and it's not uncommon for publishers to let people go after a game launches. An EA representative told Gamasutra some employees would be able join other teams within EA.

We hope those affected find new jobs soon.
