UPDATE: Zeschuk has confirmed his departure from the role of general manager at BioWare Austin, though he remains an employee at the studio he co-founded.
"With regard to BioWare Austin, I handed off the leadership of the studio to Matthew Bromberg quite some time ago (back in May),” he told Gamasutra. Ray Muzyka and I picked Matthew to take over and he’s been doing a great job with the studio.
"My time in Austin was always planned to have a finite endpoint (my family was still living in Edmonton throughout my time in Austin) and now that I’ve handed the baton to Matt, I will be able to spend more time on a wider range of BioWare games rather than focusing on just one as I did with SWTOR."
