BioWare has a new boss

SWTOR chief steps up.

EA has made Matthew Bromberg the new boss of BioWare, VentureBeat reports.

Bromberg, former CEO of Major League Gaming, was made general manager of Star Wars The Old Republic developer BioWare Austin following the retirement of BioWare co-founders Greg Zeschuck and Ray Muzyka last year.

He is now group general manager of the entire BioWare label, which encompasses studios in Edmonton, Montreal and Austin, among others. Bromberg retains leadership of BioWare Austin, but takes on BioWare Canada, Command & Conquer developer Victory Games and Waystone Studio, the developer of EA's MOBA, Dawngate.

Jeff Hickman, ex-executive producer of Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning at Mythic, has moved up to the general manager position at BioWare Austin. Aaryn Flynn remains GM of BioWare Canada, and Jon Van Caneghem retains his position as boss of Victory and Waystone.

BioWare has a lot on its plate at the moment. It's working on Dragon Age: Inquisition for PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One, a new Mass Effect game, a new IP, free-to-play MMO SWTOR, a new Command & Conquer, and a new MOBA.
