Bethesda Softworks Parent Goes Global

Mike Musgrove

The Rockville-based ZeniMax Media Inc., parent company of game developer Bethesda Softworks, announced today that it is opening a publishing subsidiary based in Tokyo.

Bethesda Softworks is a household name among gamers because of its bestselling and critically acclaimed title Oblivion, which was an epic sword-and-sorcery sorta thing. This fall, the company is scheduled a pretty cool-looking title set in a bombed-out future version of Washington, DC, called Fallout 3.

"Establishing operations in Asia is very important to us as we continue to expand our presence in markets outside of North America," said Robert Altman, CEO of ZeniMax Media Inc. in a statement released by the company.

Last year, the company announced it is opening a new studio in Hunt Valley, Md.
