Escalation Studios Is Now Bethesda Game Studios Dallas

Texas-based developer Escalation Studios is now Bethesda Game Studios Dallas, Bethesda Game Studios director Todd Howard revealed during the QuakeCon 2018 keynote address on Friday.

Escalation was founded in 2007 by former Ritual Entertainment developers Tom Mustaine and Marc Tardif. It was acquired by ZeniMax Media, Bethesda’s parent company, in 2016. It’s worked with Bethesda on a number of titles, including “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR,” “Fallout 4 VR,” and “Fallout Shelter” on the Nintendo Switch. It’s now also working on key parts of upcoming Bethesda projects “Fallout 76,” “Blades,” and “Starfield,” Howard said.

“We’ve been working with Tom, Marc, and the team at Escalation for a long time. They’ve already delivered amazing games with us, and we knew we could do even bigger things together,” said Howard.

“We were honored to join the ZeniMax family in 2016 and the team is humbled to now join Bethesda Game Studios,” said Tardif. “We’re thrilled to share in the studio’s passion and commitment to bringing new and ambitious experiences to some of the industry’s most iconic franchises.”

“This is an exciting time for everyone at the studio,” said Mustaine. “We feel a profound sense of pride and excitement to work on the most anticipated games in the industry, and we can’t wait for fans to see what we’ve been working on.”
