Celebrating the rise of the open world.
Todd Howard, director and producer for some of Bethesda's most successful franchises, will be honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2016 Game Developers Choice Awards, GDC announced.
Howard has worked at Bethesda for 22 years, having sat at the helm of some of Bethesda's most popular open-world titles, including 'Fallout 3,' 'The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim,' and this year's 'Fallout 4.' He also directed Bethesda's top-performing mobile game 'Fallout Shelter.'
"The 'Elder Scrolls' and 'Fallout' series present gamers with fully realized worlds filled with vast landscapes, and mystery at every corner. We're proud to honor the visionary developer for his leadership in creating these universes," GDC General Manager Meggan Scavio said in a news release.
Previous recipients of the GDC Lifetime Achievement Award include 'Final Fantasy' creator Hironobu Sakaguchi and Ken Kutaragi, father of the PlayStation. The Game Developers Choice Awards will be held in San Francisco and streamed over Twitch on March 16.
