Meet Roundhouse: Bethesda has opened a new studio for a game from the authors of Pray and Rune

Bethesda continues to expand its properties and has acquired another studio that has already begun work on a new

company project.

What is known

The new studio was formed by people from Human HeadStudios, which “closed its doors” in November 2019. According to the creative director, the team turned to Bethesda for help and received it. The company set up a new studio called Roundhouse Studios and offered every Human Head Studios employee a workspace.

“We turned to our friends from Bethesdafor help and they saw the creativity and passion in our team. With the creation of Roundhouse Studios, Bethesda offered every Human Head employee a position at the new company. We are thrilled that our team will remain together doing what we love, as part of a studio we already know and admire,” said Chris Reinhart, Creative Director of Roundhouse Studios.

It is noteworthy that Human Head had already collaborated with Bethesda, but split up in 2006 due to the publisher’s cancellation of Prey 2.

Human Head Studios opened its doors in 1997and managed to release eight of its own games, including Rune, Prey and Dead Man’s Hand. In addition, the team worked on Batman: Arkham Origins and BioShock Infinite. The studio's latest project was Rune 2, which reached personal computers on November 12, 2019.

The newly minted Roundhouse Studios has already taken on Bethesda's new "unannounced project", but the details remain within the studio's walls.

Over the past month, this is already the second studio thatwent under the wing of Bethesda. At the end of October, mobile game developers Alpha Dog took over the ownership of the publisher. The studio released MonstroCity: Rampage!, Wraithborne and a shareware remake of the Atari 7800 game called Ninja Golf. What Alpha Dog does is also not clear, but given the studio’s portfolio, the team could be entrusted with a new Bethesda mobile game.
