Bethesda Game Studios opens Montreal office to further mobile gaming efforts
Bethesda Game Studios, the subsidiary of ZeniMax Media that develops games belonging to the Fallout and The Elder Scrolls franchises, has opened a new office located in Montreal. The members of the studio’s new office will be working to extend its effort in video games for all platforms including mobile.
Todd Howard, Bethesda Game Studios’ Game Director and Executive Producer, said this about setting up an office in Montreal:
“We’ve worked with some very talented developers in Montreal for a long time, and decided it was time to open a studio there. It’s exciting to think about new games we’ll be building together.”
Prior to the release of the award-winning Fallout 4, Bethesda Game Studios brought the Fallout franchise to mobile devices. Fallout Shelter was brought Google Play and Apple’s App Store over the summer, generating millions of dollars in in-app purchases. The installs figure on the Play Store alone sits between 10 million and 50 million. Seeing commercial and critical success with Fallout Shelter could be what was the ‘green light’ for Bethesda Game Studios to want more people working on mobile gaming projects.
