Bethesda Game Studios Austin (formerly BattleCry Studios LLC) is an American video game developer based in Austin, Texas. It was founded on October 3, 2012, as a subsidiary of ZeniMax Media, headed by then-President Rich Vogel.
Founded as BattleCry Studios, the first game of the studio was going to be a class-based multiplayer game called BattleCry that was announced in late 2014. Development on BattleCry was halted late 2015 for the studio to assist Bethesda with the development of Fallout 76 and expansion of the Creation Kit's features. In March of 2018, BattleCry Studios was rebranded as Bethesda Game Studios Austin, making it the third studio under the Bethesda Game Studios banner.
With Bethesda Game Studios in Maryland, BSGA co-developed Fallout 76. Specifically, the company was tasked with modifying and restructuring the Creation Engine (with help from Id Software using netcode from Quake Champions) to support the multiplayer functionality needed to realize the game.
Other than Fallout 76, BSGA has assisted with developing multiplayer content for Doom (2016).
