Taking to Twitter this morning, Pete Hines has announced that after 24 years at Bethesda, he is retiring, stating that his time “has come to an end.” Hines mentioned that his decision to retire was not done “easily or quickly,” also mentioning that he “feels like the time is right” after the Starfield launch.
He started at Bethesda back in 1999 as the senior VP of Global Marketing and Communications. This was clearly evident as he became the person most synonymous with Fallout. Apparently he did such a good job there that, in 2022, he became Bethesda’s Head of Publishing.
This is certainly not goodbye by any means. My love of Bethesda and its people has never wavered, and I will never stop being part of this incredible community we have grown.”
Bethesda also made a comment on Twitter, stating “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. His contributions have been integral in building Bethesda and its family of studios into the world-class organization that it is today.”
All I can say is, go catch a smile out there!
