Bethesda Softworks has opened a new Australian office in Sydney. The site will oversee sales, marketing, and distribution for all of the group's titles across Australia and New Zealand.
In a press release sent to VG247 this morning, Simon Alty was named managing director of the office. He joins from One to Another Pty Ltd, which was involved in the launch of many Bethesda titles, including The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim.
In a statement, ZeniMax Europe's managing director Sean Brennan said, “Simon’s experience and expertise in the games industry – specifically having worked on sales and marketing of Bethesda’s titles the last four years – will be of great value as we open a publishing office in Sydney. Looking ahead, 2014 promises to be a big year for Bethesda as we release a trio of AAA titles: The Elder Scrolls Online, Wolfenstein: The New Order and The Evil Within.”
We'll have more on the new team as it happens.
