Pete Hines, head of publishing for Bethesda Softworkshas announced that he is leaving the company after 24 years with the Fallout and The Elder Scrolls publisher.
Speaking on Twitter, Hines revealed that he is retiring from Bethesda to “begin an exciting new chapter of my life exploring interests and passions,” nothing that it was not an easy decision to make.
After 24 years, I have decided my time at Bethesda Softworks has come to an end,” he wrote. “I am retiring and will begin an exciting new chapter of my life exploring interests and passions, donating my time where I can, and taking more time to enjoy life.
This was not a decision I came to easily or quickly, but after an amazing career, culminating in the incredible launch of Starfield, it feels like the time is right. This is certainly not goodbye by any means. My love of Bethesda and its people has never wavered, and I will never stop being part of this incredible community we have grown.
