Eek! LinkedIn profile of Greg Zeschuk, co-founder of Bioware, suggests that he is no longer the general manager of BioWare Austin.The profile lists BioWare is listed as both a current and previous employer, while EA, which purchased BioWare in 2008, is listed only as a previous employer.
And according to a report on German website GamersGlobal, Zeschuk allegedly “has not been sighted” at the Mass Effect studio for weeks, and neither Zeschuk nor co-founder Ray Muzyka were present at a recent company meeting.
MCV are also reporting that Zeschuk has been replaced by ex-Major League Gaming CEO Matthew Bromberg and that the studio is to be rebranded as EA Austin.
EA has posted a response:
“When Greg Zeschuk announced the reorganization of BWA in May, he outlined his plan to return to his family in Edmonton for a much deserved vacation. Greg also announced the new GM of BioWare Austin and Old Republic, Matt Bromberg. Greg is still with EA. He’s now back in Canada, taking time off and thinking about new projects. No change with Ray Muzyka.”
