Bethesda vets form Something Wicked Games, announce new RPG, Wyrdsong

After fifteen years with Bethesda, industry veteran Jeff Gardiner started his own studio, which he named Something Wicked Games.

At today’s gamescom kickoff event, the team revealed its new project: a AAA historical fiction RPG with preternatural elements. They’ve named it Wyrdsong.

“Our goal with Something Wicked Games is to utilize our independence and creative autonomy to create the next evolution of open world RPGs,” said Something Wicked Games CEO and Founder Jeff Gardiner. “Our first project, Wyrdsong, has been my dream game for some time now, and I’m thrilled to finally share it today.”

Developed on Unreal Engine 5, Wyrdsong immerses fans in a dark historical fantasy where every decision has a consequence, both in this world and others yet to be discovered.
