Skyrim developer Bethesda recruiting iOS programmer for upcoming iPhone/iPad games

Mobile magic on the horizon?

Product: Bethesda Softworks news | Manufacturer: Bethesda Softworks
 
Bethesda Softworks news iPhone, thumbnail 1
Skyrim publisher Bethesda has posted an ad on ZeniMax's (Bethesda's parent company) job listings page for a dragon new iOS programmer to work on an undisclosed number of "unannounced games".

As well as possessing the obligatory coding smarts, the ideal candidate will have experience in the iOS development field, and will follow "live blogs of every Apple event" (to obviously stay up to date on all things Apple related).

Given the rumours circulating about Bethesda's plans to reveal an Elder Scrolls MMO in May, our minds immediately leapt to thoughts of a Mass Effect 3 Datapad-style companion app for such a venture.

Detect life

Indeed, with a portfolio that includes console hits such as Oblivion, Fallout, and Skyrim, Bethesda's not short of potential tie-in properties.

This isn't the first time Bethesda has had a crack at the iOS market, with rumblings of an unnamed iPhone project dating back as far as 2009. Furthermore, the official Prima Skyrim map pack arrived on the App Store last month.

Until Bethesda reveals its future iOS agenda to the world, however, we'll have to make do with wild speculation.

Possibly a tie-in with the mmo rumour as you said.

IF, it was a full-blown iOS mmorpg title, it would be welcome addition to this lite genre. Can only really say Shadow Cities and Traveller AR and if you like wow, O&C, are any good so far. That's mostly it aside from Spacetime's franchise.

A fantasy, open pvp, sandbox mmorpg in Bethesda's IP could be fun if one were to wish for such things.. graphics don't have to be shiny on mobile games imo, as long as the design shines. : )
