A change of leadership is happening at Bethesda Softworks. Pete Hines, the game studio’s senior vice president & head of publishing, is leaving after 24 years of service.

“I am retiring and will begin an exciting new chapter of my life exploring interests and passions, donating my time where I can, and taking more time to enjoy life,” says Hines in a heartfelt X (fka Twitter) post.

After joining the company in 1999, Hines Hines has an important presence in the community was an familiar figure behind Fallout and The Elder Scrolls series. 

He, then, earned his promotion to Head of Global Publishing position last year in October – a position he held for a year until his retirement this month. 

“This was not a decision I came to easily or quickly, but after an amazing career, culminating in the incredible launch of Starfield, it feels like the time is right,” he says further.

“Pete’s public presence was only a small part of his role at Bethesda, although the way he represented us carried over into the values he nurtured here: authenticity, integrity, and passion,” Bethesda announces his retirement.
