— The end of the world is here, and so is the start of a new chapter for the world’s largest game publisher, Bethesda Softworks.
But for many gamers, this new chapter will also be the beginning of a fresh start.
With the company’s annual earnings report published Monday, Bethesda revealed the end of its financial year.
The news was met with mixed reactions, with some saying it was a good sign for the company, while others said it was an excellent sign for gamers who will be spending the rest of the year playing the new Doom 3.
Bethesda has struggled with lackluster sales for years, and now it seems like the company has found a way to get back on track with its top-selling game, Doom 3, which is in its fifth generation.
But this year, Bethesda has been trying to regain some of the ground lost in the first few years of the company and it’s now trying to build on what has worked in the past.
Betrayal in the desertWhile the company reported record profits of $1.6 billion for the year, it had some bad news to report.
The company announced it would cut 2,000 jobs at its worldwide headquarters, the Bethesda studio in Bethesda, Maryland.
The layoffs will be effective Jan. 1.
It also announced it is cutting its U.S. and Canadian headquarters staffs by about 30 percent.
In addition, the company announced that it has suspended the development of new Doom games for the rest, including Doom 4, because it cannot afford to make them in time.
But the news was cheered by the company.
It said it will be able to finish Doom 4 in 2017.
In a statement, Bethesda CEO Larry Hryb said the company was “disappointed by the news, but not surprised” and that it had “been working on a way forward.”
The company said it has a plan in place to continue to innovate and build on the best-in-class products in the market.
But critics say this is a step back for a company that had its most successful year ever in 2014.
The game industry was hit hard by the recession, which left many game developers struggling to get their games out.
But that downturn was short-lived, and in 2015, the industry regained momentum with the release of Doom 4 and The Evil Within.
In the past, Bethesda games have not been the kind of hits that have made it a top-tier publisher, with sales dipping and even some critical acclaim.
But with a reboot of Doom, Bethesda is hoping to get a better return on investment from its games.
The publisher will have a chance to see if that pays off.
The end of this year will be a time of transition for Bethesda, with many of the studio’s former employees leaving.
But Hrybe says the company is committed to keeping those employees, as well as all of its games, going.
Bethesda said it would hire around 1,500 new people in 2018, with another 300 positions being filled this year.
It’s not just games that will be coming out of Bethesda’s doors.
The studio is working on the next game in the highly anticipated, long-awaited Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, which was released in 2017 and will be released in 2018.
The studio is also looking at making the next Fallout game in 2021, according to the Bethesda blog.
Bethesda also announced the hiring of a full-time technical director, which will allow the company to spend more time on its games and on development of the next version of Doom.
Bettersthat makes sense, as Bethesda’s next games will likely be developed by some of its best-known developers.
This includes Bethesda co-founder Larry “Major Nelson” Hryba, who co-founded BioWare, which helped make Mass Effect and Skyrim so popular.
Hrybs newest title, Doom, has also been heavily developed by his company, and he recently told IGN he is excited to continue that work.
But Bethesda has also worked with some smaller companies to develop games, like BioWare’s Skyrim, and it is expected to continue doing that, too.
It is a big year for Bethesda as it begins to rebuild its reputation as a developer of quality, but the company may also need to rethink its approach to developing games.
While Doom and Skyrim were critically acclaimed, the games were also criticized for being too difficult, which some people believed could make players hate them.
Bethesda’s recent releases of The Elder Scrolls series, Skyrim and Fallout 4, are both in the top-ten best-selling PC games of all time.
