ZeniMax in renewed MMO drive

Bethesda parent recruiting major online game talent

Bethesda parent ZeniMax Media is currently hunting more MMO talent for its online games division.

The team has already netted vets Steve Escalante and former Blizzard talent Rich Barnham for the company's unannounced MMO title, which rumours suggest could be based on the popular Fallout or Elder Scrolls brand.

"Their addition to the management team of industry vets exemplifies the quality hires we are striving to identify," offered Matt Firor, president of ZeniMax Online.

ZeniMax owns Fallout and Elder Scrolls studio Bethesda Softworks, and is also working with the UK's Splash Damage on a multiplatform title.
