Bioware Ireland provided Austin studio with “multiple dimensions of support” with SWTOR

Tuesday, 3rd January 2012 15:35 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Bioware has said its Galway-based offices provided “multiple dimensions of support” for its Austin-based studio by monitoring server stability in Star Wars: The Old Republic.

The Ireland branch, which was announced in 2010 and officially opened for business in September 2011, currently employs around 400 people who focus on quality assurance, networking and localization.

According to Bioware co-founder Greg Zeschuk, the Ireland branch may “over time” take on more responsibility on the development end, as it’s provided “high quality service every step of the way” since SWTOR launched last month.

Thanks, Joystiq.

    many gamers think these companies just have a handful of workers. for swtor they have 400+ workers for the support alone aspects. games might be big business but there also lots of hard work and dedication from 100s and 1000s of people in many job tasks.
