Developer Alpha Dog Games Acquired By Bethesda
With most of Bethesda’s current gen games already having been announced and released, many are looking to the company’s plans for future games and expansion into non-traditional gaming spaces. One area where they have indicated a plan for innovation is mobile gaming. Their efforts in this initiative have already been seen in mobile spinoffs of their most popular franchises with Fallout Shelter and The Elder Scrolls: Blades. Now, it looks like the fan favorite developer is looking to further support their mobile gaming division with a newly acquired studio, Alpha Dog Games.
As reported on Prima Games, Bethesda has announced their acquisition of Canadian game development studio Alpha Dog Games. The studio is best known for developing several mobile games, including Monstrocity: Rampage and Wraithborne. When it comes to their studio’s mission, and their goals for working under Bethesda and ZeniMax Media, here’s what Alpha Dog had to say:
We develop games we believe in as a team and set the bar high with a heavy focus on social experience. Harnessing the power of Unity and Unreal Engine 4, our goal is to build an iconic brand through evolutionary design and pushing the limit of mobile games.”
It will be interesting to see which franchises Alpha Dog turns into mobile games, or if they are given creative control with a brand new franchise specifically meant for mobile. Would Alpha Dog make new mobile games for the likes of Doom or Wolfenstein, or could they be told to expand upon the mobile camps established by Fallout Shelter and The Elder Scrolls: Blades? Only time will tell, but they certainly have a comfortable spot with Bethesda, who many consider to be the alpha dogs of gaming.
