In a heartfelt message to his community, Bethesda Softworks legend, Pete ‘Uncle Pete’ Hines has announced that he’s retiring from the firm after a whopping 24 years of representing the brand. He stated that ‘the time is right’ following the launch of Starfield, which was potentially the biggest game in the company’s history.

Farewell, Uncle Pete

It’s a busy time for high-level retirements – it was just weeks ago that PlayStation’s CEO, Jim Ryan, announced that he’s retiring from the industry after more than thirty years in the business.

Pete Hines has been a visible and outspoken force within Bethesda Softworks for years, and as he leaves the company, he’s vacating the ‘Global Head of Publishing’ position. Many games have found their way to his desk over the years, and he has had the pleasure of delivering countless massive releases for the company and its associated studios over the past two-and-a-bit decades.

Here’s Hines’ message:

Pete promises to remain a part of the Bethesda community – he might be retiring from the work, but he’s definitely hanging around for the enjoyment of the top-tier titles that the firm produces.
