Bethesda’s Making a “Bleeding-Edge AAA Freemium” Game
The Elder Scrolls and Fallout developer Bethesda is working on a “bleeding-edge AAA freemium game,” according to a job listing for its Montreal location. Spotted by NeoGAF user Nirolak, the vacancy announcement for a Game Performance Manager could be for one of the three “kinda longer-term projects,” the studio teased before.
“Bethesda Game Studios is looking for a great Game Performance Manager based in Montreal, to join the team that is pushing the bleeding-edge AAA freemium game development,” reads the post. “In this role, you will work with game team to envision, evolve, and operate monetization strategies, targeting the intersection of revenue generation goals and quality player experience.”
Noteworthy responsibilities are as follows:
- Work with the game design team on monetization design, strategy and execution
- Envision in-game content and business model recommendations
- Set requirements and create specifications for monetization features
Ideally, you will have experience defining and operating online game business models, and have a deep understanding of player interactions with those models, both at the individual and community levels.
E3’s around the corner so we might hear something during the event. However, it’s quite possible that the project is still in its early stages and Bethesda isn’t ready to announce anything yet.
