Pete Hines, Bethesda's head of publishing, has announced his retirement after 24 years with the company.

The details:

  • Hines announced his retirement from Bethesda Softworks in a statement posted to his personal X account, stating he intends to "begin an exciting new chapter" that includes "exploring interests and passions" and "taking more time to enjoy life." According to the executive, the decision to retire was not easy, but with the recent release of Starfield, he felt the time was right.
  • Hines also shared that his retirement will not stop him from remaining active in the Bethesda community. "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,” said Hines. “Thank you to the hundreds and thousands of fans I've gotten to meet and talk to over the last 24 years. Your energy, creativity, and support has been such a big part of my journey. I look forward to experiencing the next part of the adventure alongside you.”
  • Bethesda also issued a statement regarding Hines' retirement, stating that his public presence during his tenure at the company was "only a small part" of his role, and that he was “integral in building Bethesda and its family of studios into the world-class organisation that it is today.”
