According to a new forum post on the official Star Wars: The Old Republic site, Bioware, developers of SWTOR, is in "restructuring" mode, usually PR-speak for employees losing their jobs. The actual number of redundancies is not given.
Hey folks, since you’re reading this you may likely have heard that we’ve done some restructuring here on the SWTOR team.

Impacting people’s lives this way is always very hard, but we’re ensuring the affected people are treated with dignity, fairness and respect.
Looking back at launch, we all came together and did something historic. We executed one of the largest, most successful and stable launches of any MMO yet in industry history. That is not an easy feat for any development team or company and we are humbled and honored by our fan community’s strong support both at launch and beyond.
