Bethesda has had a short but difficult time in publishing mobile games.
Fallout Shelter became more known for a copy-cat Westworld clone that Bethesda ended up suing over. And The Elder Scrolls: Blades quickly a microtransaction-riddled disappointed.
However, that hasn’t stopped Bethesda from carrying on in the market. In fact, Bethesda Softworks has gone and acquired mobile game developer Alpha Dog Games.
Bethesda senior vice president of development Todd Vaughn said in a press release;
“We are impressed by the team at Alpha Dog’s commitment to quality and depth of experience in mobile. We’re excited to have them join the Bethesda family.”
Alpha Dog is most known for RTS game MonstroCity: Rampage as well as action RPG Wraithborne, both are available on Apple and Android devices.
Neither party has announced or teased a new game, but it probably won’t be too long. And then Bethesda’s growing microtransaction trend and will take yet another step towards the dark side.
Oh, who are we kidding? They’re already there!
