Bethesda opens new Austin-based Battlecry Studios

Headed by MMO veteran Rich Vogel, working on 'unannounced project'

Bethesda Softworks has formed a new development studio, Battlecry Studios, based in Austin, Texas.


The new studio will be lead by MMO veteran and former executive producer on BioWare's Star Wars: The Old Republic, Rich Vogel, who has also previously worked on Ultima Online and Star Wars Galaxies.

According to the announcement, the new studio is already at work on an 'unannounced project', and is hiring to fill spots on the development team for the new title.

No further info on the game is offered, but with Vogel at the helm you'd be forgiven for expecting something online, massive and multiplayer.

"I have always admired and respected Bethesda's approach to making great, original games," said Vogel. "It's a belief and passion I share, and I'm looking forward to building a team of high quality developers who want to bring that same commitment and creative energy to the games we'll be creating."
