Developer and publisher Bethesda Softworks has announced a long-term development partnership with London-based studio Splash Damage. This follows Bethesda's February announcement that it had established a new London-based subsidiary for publishing its titles throughout the UK and other EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) territories. Splash Damage has been recognized by the industry with several awards for its multiplayer first-person shooter titles, such as Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory and Enemy Territory: Quake Wars. The British developer announced in February that it would be doubling its staff in anticipation of a new and unannounced multiplatform title currently in development. Based in Rockville, Maryland, Bethesda Softworks is best known for its work on The Elder Scrolls series. Its next title, Fallout 3, a post-apocalyptic action RPG for the PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360, is scheduled to release in fall 2008. Said Bethesda Softworks president Vlatko Andonov: “This could not be a more perfect fit. We are extremely impressed with Splash Damage and the quality titles they produce. They are highly creative and innovative, and have demonstrated a high level of dedication to their projects. We are confident that gamers everywhere will be thrilled with the offerings from this collaboration.”
