Just thought i would chime in about this, as this will have some kind of impact on SWTOR here. I would think maybe even less resources for this game. What do you guys think.

"Senior Animator for Star Wars Old Republic"

Does this mean they'll fix the FemSmug's weird run when she's carrying a weapon?

I thought they had scattered Montreal after Andromeda (oh, its not that bad). So, I guess if they're just hiring artists then perhaps the manpower they have is it.

Bioware Austin is where SWTOR is produced. I don't believe Montreal has ever been involved, or if they were.. it was work jobbed-out from Austin to spare resources from time to time.

In other words... this changes nothing.
When you find yourself surrounded by hostile Clowns... always go for the "Juggler" first.

It's a complete different studio in another country that has nothing to do with swtor. I can't see how this would have any impact on swtor.
BF2 might have an impact as a competing game for players, but that's because it's EAs focus SW game and new.

ME has been canned for now, DA hasn't been seen since and bioware are working on a few other games. Swtor should be okay to go and the fact that bioware are still hiring for people for swtor means it's still very much active.

BF2? wait what? there is already a BF2 that was launched years ago...

There is something afoot for DA by the looks of the current job openings

BF2 in this instance is Battlefront 2 https://www.ea.com/games/starwars/ba...Localized=true
