Bethesda buys MonstroCity developer Alpha Dog Games

Bethesda has acquired the mobile-focused studio Alpha Dog Games, the publisher of big-name PC and console games like Fallout and Elder Scrolls announced today.

The studio – which is located in Nova Scotia, Canada – was founded in 2012. Two industry veterans lead the company: Shawn Woods and Jeff Cameron. Their product catalog has focused on iOS and Android games like MonstroCity: Rampage and the action-RPG Wraithborne.

“We are impressed by the team at Alpha Dog’s commitment to quality and depth of experience in mobile,” says Todd Vaughn, Bethesda’s Senior VP of Development. “We’re excited to have them join the Bethesda family.”

According to Bethesda, Alpha Dog “will support Bethesda’s growing mobile game initiative, developing new and exciting titles for iOS and Android devices.”

Bethesda has had success on mobile devices in the past. The 2015 hit Fallout Shelter was a mobile-only spin-off of their Fallout franchises. Earlier this year, the company released The Elder Scrolls: Blades on Android and iOS.
