Multiplayer games specialist Splash Damage has signed a long-term development partnership with Bethesda.
The London-based studio will develop a brand-new game for the publisher, best known for the internally-developed Oblivion title for Xbox 360, and which recently expanded its operations into both Europe and Japan.
Splash Damage is best known for its work creating multiplayer components for the likes of Doom 3 and Wolfenstein. It was formed by Paul Wedgewood in 2001 and staffed by key members of the mod-making community. Itís first fully-owned boxed game Enemy Territory: Quake Wars, the latest in its long-running collaboration with id Software, debuted last year. More details on its work with Bethesda are due in the coming months.
