Bethesda Game Studios is an American in-house development team at Bethesda Softworks established in 2001. Previously synonymous with parent publisher Bethesda Softworks, the studio's name and logo were established with the release of The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind in 2002. The studio is currently led by executive producer Todd Howard. Bethesda Game Studios, Bethesda Softworks and ZeniMax Media all work in the same building.
Bethesda Game Studios was established in 2001. All of the developers from Bethesda Softworks moved to Bethesda Game Studios in 2002. Then Bethesda Softworks and Bethesda Game Studios became separated between publisher and developer. In the past, not all BGS titles were published by the Softworks division. However, beginning with The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion for the PlayStation 3, Bethesda Softworks began publishing all Bethesda Game Studios games.
On December 9, 2015, a new studio located in Montreal was established by Bethesda. The new studio is led by Yves Lachance, the former head of Behaviour Interactive, and is set to broaden Bethesda's portfolio of games across all gaming platforms.
