The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion lead designer Ken Rolston, who also worked on Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, has joined Big Huge Games to create a to-be-announced role-playing game.

“Ken’s addition marks a bold new direction for Big Huge Games,” said BHG President Tim Train. “We remain committed to creating real-time strategy games such as past hits Rise of Nations and Rise of Legends. At the same time, we’ve explored developing a role-playing game for several years now. Ken is a fantastic fit for us on every level, and gives us the leadership we need to be confident of success in our new venture.”

“A chance to work on a Big Huge Game with Big Huge Games? Who could resist?” said Rolston. “I had planned to retire and rest on my laurels after Oblivion, but Tim and his army of visionary charmers came along with a strikingly original and cunning concept for a console RPG…so now I’m back in the harness and chomping at the bit!”
