Yeah, right. Not clicking your link. It's probably ****. If it were true, it would link a Bioware site.

It's real. Check twitter, the official swtor twitter sent the same link. It's not a bioware link because it's to a job recruitment agency for the temp game tester position.

It's the link they just posted on Facebook.
They use outside firms for recruiting positions like this.

However, for the click-shy, here's what it says:

Okay. I stand corrected.

Still odd Bioware doesn't use the test server setup and actually paying (?) people to to test it.

That's what happens when you bring a game back from the dead....you now have some wiggle room to properly test games prior too release them...even to the PTS.

I think I'd take this as a pretty good sign...

Well, it's on-site and they aren't going to pay you to move.
It's also a temp position and probably doesn't pay very much.

I'm sure if you wanted to commute and/or move there at your own expense that they'd consider you.
