In Episode 3 of Branching Narratives, Jeff talks with Pete Hines, Senior VP of Global Marketing and Communications at Bethesda, who graciously calls in from his vacation to spill all the beans about Starfield and the next Elder Scrolls game. Just kidding! Seriously, he does not do that! [Download Link Here]
What he does do is share his experiences and memories of the past 20 years at Bethesda, as the company rose from small, independent studio to a global publishing giant. Pete and Jeff dig into the evolution of game dev and marketing from the pre-internet days to now, how companies are getting anything done at all during the pandemic, the joys and headaches of engaging with fans, and why Pete can never, ever tell his kids what Bethesda is up to. (So don't ask them about Elder Scrolls 6 either.)
