Bethesda Game Studios is one of the most popular video game studios in the world. Elder Scrolls and Fallout are two of its most popular titles, and they were both commercial successes. With such popularity, it is no surprise that Bethesda decided to add another studio.
The newest addition is a new studio in Texas, and it will become the home for many upcoming Bethesda projects. “As the vision, scale, and ambitions for our games continue to grow, so does Bethesda Game Studios. We’ve had the pleasure to know the talented developers at BattleCry, and knew we could do great things together,” explained Todd Howard, the executive producer and game director.
They decided to welcome BattleCry Studios in Austin.and the studio director of it will be Doug Mellencamp. He added that his team is excited to join Bethesda Game Studios. The studio is excited to work on the upcoming projects and Doug Mellencamp added that he believes that „Austin’s incredible game development scene and talent will also allow us to push our games further than fans have imagined”.
New jobs and projects
If you take a look on Bethesda’s site you will notice that there are many job listing. Now there are even some jobs available for the Austin studio, but there are no details about the upcoming projects. We do know that Todd Howard promised some “big and crazy” projects.
We do know that it will take some time until Elder Scrolls VI will be produced, so that won’t happen really soon. However, that does not mean that there won’t be any other projects released by the studio. Since they haven’t released anything in a while, except for some VR adaptations of some of their game, we should expect something new very soon.
