Bethesda announced today they are opening a new studio as part of the ZeniMax family.

Called Battlecry Studios, the new studio is headed up by Rich Vogel, who worked on such titles as Ultima Online and Star Wars: The Old Republic. The studio is located in Austin, Texas.

"I have always admired and respected Bethesda's approach to making great, original games," said Vogel in a press release. "It's a belief and passion I share, and I'm looking forward to building a team of high quality developers who want to bring that same commitment and creative energy to the games we'll be creating."

Battlecray Studios is the second studio located in Austin, Texas; following Arkane Studios, whose game Dishonored is due out this month.
