Bethesda Softworks, the developer behind The Elder Scrolls franchise, has opened up a new studio in Sydney, Australia. The studio has been named ZeniMax Australia and will oversee the publishing of Bethesda games in Australia and New Zealand.
It was also announced that Simon Alty will be the managing director for the new studio. He had previously worked at One to Anothe Pty, a marketing company. He has worked on The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, among other games.
"Simon's experience and expertise in the games industry - specifically having worked on sales and marketing of Bethesda's titles the last four years - will be of great value as we open a publishing office in Sydney," said ZeniMax Europe's Sean Brennan. "Looking ahead, 2014 promises to be a big year for Bethesda as we release a trio of AAA titles: The Elder Scrolls Online, Wolfenstein: The New Order and The Evil Within."
Bethesda will be releasing The Elder Scrolls Online, Wolfenstein: The New Order and The Evil Within next year.
