Bethesda’s Pete Hines retires


Bethesda publishing director Pete Hines announced his retirement after 24 years working for the Microsoft-owned publisher. Hines has always led Bethesda in communications and events. Thanks to that, he gained popularity and became one of the notable people in the gaming industry.

“After 24 years, I have decided that my time at Bethesda Softworks has come to an end,” Hines shared on Twitter/X. “I am retiring and will begin an exciting new chapter of my life exploring interests and passions, donating my time where I can, and taking more time to enjoy life. “This was not a decision I made easily or quickly, but after an incredible career, culminating in the incredible release of Starfield, I feel the time is right.”

“This is certainly not goodbye by any means. My love for Bethesda and its people has never wavered and I will never stop being a part of this incredible community that we have grown up in. Thank you to the hundreds and thousands of fans I have met and spoken to over the past 24 years. Your energy, creativity and support have been a very important part of my journey. I look forward to experiencing the next part of the adventure with you.”

Hines concluded by saying: “Working with the incredible people, teams, and studios at Bethesda has been the best experience of my life. “I am incredibly proud of everything we have done together and am truly excited to see the incredible things they will create next.”

Starfield is Hines’ first release under the Microsoft banner, and it’s hard to imagine such a great person leaving.
