Bethesda Announces a New Studio in Austin

Battlecry Studios, the Austin-based development team founded in 2012 with the main goal to develop the eponymous (and canceled) free-to-play team multiplayer combat game Battlecry, has now been incorporated into Bethesda Game Studios.

As subsidiaries of ZeniMax Media, both BattleCry and Bethesda Game Studios have been operating under the same umbrella for some time, but today's move means the pair will now be working together in an official capacity.

Todd Howard, Game Director and Executive Producer at Bethesda Game Studios, noted vision, ambition and scale continue to increase across their games and calls for the company to grow.

Android 8.0 Oreo is rolling out to the LG V30 on Verizon
Once this update is installed, users of the device will be able to take advantage of features like the Picture-in-Picture mode. Samsung Turkey has officially listed a schedule for the Android 8.0 Oreo update roll out for a few Samsung smartphones.

The director is going to be Doug Mellencamp, one of the former directors for BattleCry studios. Well, the game studio decided that only industry veterans that have experience in developing AAA games will be part of the new team. He previously was the GM and technical director of BattleCry Studios.

"We're excited to join Bethesda Game Studios and look forward to working together on some of the industry's most exciting new games".

This growth will mark the second studio expansion since the founding of Bethesda's in-house game studio in 2001 and the newest addition since Bethesda Game Studios Montreal in late 2015. "Austin's incredible game development scene and talent will also allow us to push our games further than fans have imagined". Without any now announced titles on deck for release, expect to hear a lot more about what Bethesda Game Studios is working on at this year's Bethesda E3 2018 Showcase, which was revealed last week.
