History[change | edit source]

Bethesda Softworks created its first video game in 1989, named Gridiron. From this game, they were contacted to make more popular games such as Terminator and the Wayne Gretzki series. A few games made by Bethesda won the Game of the Year Award, such as Fallout and The Elder Scrolls series. This second series consisted of 6 games: Arena, Daggerfall, Redguard, Morrowind, Oblivion and Skyrim.

Bethesda Game Studios[change | edit source]

Bethesda Game Studios (BGS) is the award-winning, in-house development team at Bethesda Softworks led by game director and executive producer Todd Howard.

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.
