Former SWTOR executive producer heads to Battlecry Studios for unnanounced title

Rich Vogel, the former executive producer of Star Wars: The Old Republic, has found a new home with Bethesda Softworks. Bethesda has announced a new studio: Battlecry Studios will be based in Austin, Texas, and headed up by Vogel. Battlecry Studios is looking for "experienced game developers to fill key roles for an unannounced project."

Bethesda President Vlatko Andonov says the company is excited about Rich's "history of building and managing talented development teams and bringing high quality games to market," while Vogel has "always admired and respected Bethesda's approach to making great, original games."

While there's no information yet as to the nature of the title, Vogel's long history with MMOs gives us hope. Bethesda's parent company, ZeniMax, already has The Elder Scrolls Online in development through Zenimax Online Studios but might be looking to make use of its rights to the Fallout franchise.
