Due to growing concerns of coronavirus, Bethesda has issued a new statement on Twitter about how the company is dealing with it.
According to the new statement, Bethesda is transitioning to remote work. Social distancing is the best way to keep the virus contained and not spread to others, and it seems that game studios will be able to manage nicely, as most will be able to telecommute.
However, for those who can’t, work remote Bethesda is doing good by them still paying them until they find out a way to set up a home office. This is a nice touch, as we don’t see every company paying workers who can’t make it into work.
