SWTOR Devs Leave BioWare to Make Indie Game
Arnie Jorgensen, Alex Thomas, and John Watson were the hit MMORPG Star Wars The Old Republic's lead concept artist, senior environment artist, and lead combat programmer, respectfully. The three have decided to leave BioWare to make their own company for an indie RPG/RTS game called The Banner Saga. The guys describe The Banner Saga as "roleplaying meets turn-based strategy, wrapped into an adventure miniseries about vikings." It sounds intriguing for sure, but while BioWare has lost some talent in this split, we as gamers may win by getting a potentially fun game to play.
