Bethesda buys Alpha Dog mobile game development studio

Bethesda Softworks has expanded its holdings by acquiring the Alpha Dog Games studio.

What is known

Team portfolio

consists of mobile games.From Alpha Dog Games came MonstroCity: Rampage!, Wraithborne and a shareware remake of the Atari 7800 game called Ninja Golf. Moreover, the merger clearly did not take place because of the “black streak” at Alpha Dog Games. According to, MonstroCity: Rampage managed to break into the top 100 games in 103 countries around the world.

According to Bethesda Senior Vice President of Development Todd Vaughn, the company was impressed by Alpha Dog Games' approach to mobile game development:

“We were impressed by the Alpha Dog team and their commitment to quality and depth of expertise in the mobile space. We are thrilled to have them join the Bethesda family.”

It is not yet clear what the new studio will do,but Bethesda is not new to the mobile gaming scene. The company broke into the portable entertainment market with Fallout Shelter, which can now even be played on a Tesla. Also, The Elder Scrolls: Blades and The Elder Scrolls: Legends performed well on Android and iOS, and Commander Keen will appear on mobile phones very soon. Perhaps Alpha Dog Games will be sent to oversee existing games, or the studio will be asked to make a new hit for Bethesda.
