BioWare Streamlines Operations, Laying Off Approximately 50 Staff for Enhanced Agility and Focus

The practical implication of this shift is the elimination of approximately 50 positions at BioWare. The statement did not specify which roles would be affected, but early reactions on social media suggest that longstanding writers and staff members who have been with BioWare since Dragon Age Origins in 2007 may have been let go. Notably, BioWare veteran writer Mary Kirby announced her availability on Twitter.

Gary McKay attempted to mitigate the impact of these layoffs by mentioning that there are currently a significant number of open positions across other Electronic Arts (EA) studios. He assured affected employees that they would receive assistance and resources if they chose to apply for these positions. However, he acknowledged that not everyone would find a new role within the company.
