Microsoft continues its restructuring efforts with the closure of Bethesda France, resulting in the loss of 15 jobs. This decision has left many employees and partners saddened by the end of an era, signaling major changes within the company.

One community manager, who dedicated 8 years to Bethesda France, expressed their heartfelt sentiments on Twitter, reminiscing about the unforgettable experiences and opportunities provided by the company. The closure, which is part of mass layoffs by Microsoft globally, reflects a larger trend in the gaming industry.


While the shutdown of Bethesda France may have personal repercussions for those involved, it is not expected to impact the overall operations and plans for Bethesda's games. The office primarily focused on publishing and marketing within the region, serving as a localized hub for Bethesda's activities.
