    Head of global publishing and senior vice-president at Bethesda, Pete Hines, just announced that he is retiring. If you have watched any Bethesda showcase over the past several years, you probably saw Hines speak at least once during the presentations. He was probably the second most recognizable face from Bethesda outside of Todd Howard.

    Hines had a hand in the launch of several key Bethesda franchises since he began working for the marketing team in 1999. He helped to launch The Elder Scrolls, Fallout, and Starfield. He says that his decision to retire did not come "easily or quickly." Pete Hines shared his retirement announcement on Twitter.

    Hines says that he is ready to "begin an exciting new chapter of (his) life exploring interests and passions." He plans to donate his time where he can and will just take more time to enjoy life.

    In response to his retirement announcement, the Bethesda Twitter account took a moment to write up an amusing little work excuse note. Don't worry, they also put up a more serious note of goodbye to Hines.

    As of right now, there is no word on who will replace Pete Hines at Bethesda. Hines also did not specify when his last day at Bethesda will be, but it sure does sound like his retirement is effective immediately. It is possible he may stick around for a little bit longer to help out during a transitional phase.
