Bethesda recently opened up a new studio in Austin, and to no one’s surprise, they’re now looking to hire more people for the newly opened studio- but for which game? We know they’re currently working on a few pretty big projects, and there’s no doubt in anyone’s minds that The Elder Scrolls 6 has to be one of them (but how far away that game is is still anybody’s guess).
As per the job ad posted on ZeniMax’s (Bethesda’s parent company) official website, Bethesda are looking to hire a new quest designer for their Austin studio. Responsibilities for the position include things such as “designing and documenting stories and quests”, and overseeing things such as “creative narrative structure”, “writing dialogue”, and “scripting gameplay”. And here’s something else that’s interesting- “excellent storytelling, dialogue writing, and editing skills” are listed as requirements for the position.
For all their strengths, games developed by Bethesda Game Studios have always been known to have mediocre writing and storytelling at best (even we’ve written about this in the past), so it’s good to see that the studio is at least trying to work on its weaknesses. What game the newly opened Austin studio is going to be working on, though, is completely up in the air right now. It can be for the long rumored Starfield or The Elder Scrolls 6, we are not sure at this point. Perhaps, this year’s E3 will give us some answers.
