If you didn’t see it, today our parent company, Zenimax Media, put out a press release announcing the acquisition of id Software. Creators of world-renowned games such as DOOM, QUAKE, Wolfenstein, and its upcoming title, Rage, we’re very excited to have them join our family. Here’s a snippet from the release:
Robert Altman, the founder, Chairman & CEO of ZeniMax Media stated, “We, along with many others, consider id Software to be among the finest game studios in the world, with extraordinary design, artistic and technical capabilities. They have demonstrated, repeatedly, that rare ability to create franchise properties that are critical and commercial successes. Our intention is to make sure id Software will continue to do what they do best â€“ make AAA games. Our role will be to provide publisher support through Bethesda Softworks and give id Software the resources it needs to grow and expand.”
