Escalation Studios Rebranded As Bethesda Game Studios Dallas
As he walked out on the Quakecon 2018 stage, Bethesda Game Studios head Todd Howard was immediately inundated with questions.
"I understand you have questions, and demand answers," Howard said. But he wasn't there to shed more light on Fallout 76 just yet – that's tomorrow. Instead, he made a housekeeping announcement about a partner studio.
After years working with id Software on projects like the 2016 Doom reboot's SnapMap tools, Escalation Studios was acquired by ZeniMax Media, the parent company of Bethesda Softworks in 2017. Now, the studio has been rebranded as Bethesda Game Studios Dallas.
This gives Bethesda Game Studios offices in four cities – Austin, Dallas, Montreal, and Rockville, Maryland.
Howard said BGS Dallas is working on key parts of Fallout 76, Blades, and Starfield.
