Bethesda Softworks heeft een nieuwe developer studio, Roundhouse Studios, geopend.

Roundhouse bestaat uit het team van het onlangs gesloten Human Head Studios dat bekend was voor onder meer de originele Prey uit 2006, The Quiet Man en Rune II. De studio speelde ook een ondersteunende rol bij de ontwikkeling van onder andere Just Cause 3 en was verantwoordelijk voor de Wii U port van Batman: Arkham Origins.
De studio sloot eerder deze maand de deuren wegens financiële redenen.

Bethesda heeft de studio, samen met alle werknemers, overgenomen en omgedoopt tot Roundhouse Studios.

“After 22 great years of making games as an independent studio, economic realities have forced us to make the decision to wind down the company and close its doors. But while we are closing the book on Human Head, we are not closing the book on the amazing team we have assembled.
We wanted to do whatever we could to keep the team together and keep each member of our talented staff employed, right here at home. That’s when we reached out to Bethesda Softworks to see what might be possible. As a result, we are happy to announce that the development team from Human Head is becoming part of Bethesda as a new studio based in Madison, WI, called Roundhouse Studios. The entire staff has been offered new roles with Bethesda, and it’s exciting to know that our team, which has accomplished so much together, for so long, can continue doing what we love.”
