This morning, Bethesda Game Studios announced that it will be expanding, thanks to its acquisition of Austin, Texas based BattleCry Studios. This financial move will increase the company’s development capacity, and should lead to more titles, one would think.
“As the vision, scale and ambitions for our games continue to grow, so does Bethesda Game Studios,” said Todd Howard, Game Director and Executive Producer at Bethesda Game Studios. “We’ve had the pleasure to know the talented developers at BattleCry, and knew we could do great things together.”
Bethesda Game Studios Austin is going to be staffed with a core of industry vets, and will be led by Mr. Doug Mellencamp, who will serve as its Studio Director.
“We’re excited to join Bethesda Game Studios and look forward to working together on some of the industry’s most exciting new games,” said Mellencamp. “Austin’s incredible game development scene and talent will also allow us to push our games further than fans have imagined.”
Also worth mentioning is the fact that Bethesda is currently hiring for not just this location, but also its Maryland and Montreal offices. For more information, head to its careers portal.
