Bethesda Opens New Austin Studio

The Bethesda Blog introduces Battlecry Studios, a new development house located in Austin, TX headed up by Rich Vogel, the former Star Wars: The Old Republic executive producer who recently departed BioWare. "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." There are no details yet about what they will be doing first other than to say: "The new studio is currently hiring other experienced game developers to fill key roles for an unannounced project."

Hello and good-bye Battlecry Studios... 'twas nice gettin' ta know ya as short as it may have been...

Seriously, with Rich Vogel on the wheel they are fucked before shit has even started. Rich Vogel's body count: Two Star Wars MMOs (which could have and should have been surefire smash hits thanks to the license if the games themselves wouldn't have sucked major donkey balls) and UO which slipped from being the no. 1 MMO into the pits of insignificance. Awesome track record right there. No, really.
Next on his hit list: Whatever MMO Battlecry is going to work on. That game is toast already. Mark my words. If I were Beth I'd spend the money on beer and hookers instead of flushing it down the shitter with Vogel but that's just me...
