    [​IMG]The Game Nomad reports that Modder David Pierce became a senior designer for the Elder Scrolls VI:


    Campfire and Frostfall Mod Author Chesko Is Working on The Elder Scrolls 6 at Bethesda

    David Pierce, better known as Chesko in the Skyrim modding community, is now a Senior Designer at Bethesda Game Studios currently working on the upcoming Elder Scroll 6, according to an official interview on Bethesda.Net.

    Pierce joined Bethesda full-time two years ago and worked on the economy design for Bethesda's last release, Starfield. Currently, he's working "with an amazing team on The Elder Scrolls 6." The highly anticipated Elder Scrolls sequel is still likely years away. However, as Pete Hines confirmed in August 2023, the game was indeed moving into development by the time Starfield was launching and Pierce's statement further corroborates that.

    Bethesda's practice of hiring prominent mod authors is not new. Before this instance, we know of Kris Takahashi (Interesting NPCs), Elianora (home mod aficionado), Stephanie Zachariadis (ex-lead writer for the upcoming Fallout London), and several others who started as hobbyist modders and ended up as full-time Bethesda devs. As Pierce says in the interview,

    "Everything that I learned as a modder translated into my professional career; I feel like I came onboard with a broad perspective on our games and how they're built."

    And developing mods is a process of finding creative solutions and resourcefulness. However, regarding being a part of a larger studio as compared to solo developing mods, Pierce says,

    "It's different now that I'm on a team, but every so often, I run into a unique problem that makes me reach into my bag of tricks."
