Senior gameplay left Bungie to join Fallout and Elder Scrolls studio

Destiny senior gameplay designer Josh Hamrick has left Bungie to join Fallout and Elder Scrolls developer Bethesda. He announced the news on Twitter, expressing gratitude to Bungie, and wishing the developer all the best as it continues to work on Destiny going forward without him.

Hamrick did not announce his exact title at Bethesda, nor did he say what project at the developer he’ll be working on. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim team Betheda Game Studios is currently working on an unannounced game.

Some are suggesting this game may be announced at E3 given that Bethesda is–for the first time ever–holding its own press conference at the show.

 

During Hamrick’s nearly six years at Bungie, he also worked on the developer’s final Halo title, Halo: Reach. Prior to joining Bungie in 2009, Hamrick worked at Midway Studios Austin on BlackSite: Area 51, among other titles.

Destiny launched in September 2014 and Bungie has continually supported and expanded game since then. The game’s first add-on, The Dark Below, was released in December, while the next expansion–House of Wolves–will be released before the end of June. Bungie is also working on “Destiny 2.”
