SWTOR’s Tait Watson departs BioWare, trades Austin for SoCal
“I haven’t been fired, and I haven’t been laid off,” he says. “I am leaving BioWare to move to California.” Specifically? San Diego.
“[E]ven though there have been rough times, I have never once dreaded coming into work. Not one time in the time I’ve worked here, and a huge part of that is all of you. Yes, you. If you have somehow come across these words on the internet, I am talking to you. You are the beating heart that keeps this vibrant and unabashedly passionate community going, and for that you don’t get enough credit. But I assure you, every single day people come into work and strive to show you just how important you are to us.”
The greater San Diego area is home to many game studios, including MMORPG studios, Blizzard and Daybreak among them; his resume shows a former stint at Blizzard already, but he’s thus far not talking about where he’s headed.
