Straight from the, didn’t see that one coming, files comes news that id Software (the creators of Doom, Quake) have been taken over by ZeniMax who is the parent company of other well known development studio Bethesda. The acquisition means that id’s next Doom title will be published by ZeniMax, it is likely that their current project "Rage" will remain under the deal struck with EA and it’s partner program as we have seen happen with other studios that have been purchased mid development, although the trademark for rage is now owned by ZeniMax .

I guess if you are going to be brought out by any publisher, one like ZeniMax is the way to go, they seem to have been doing very well with their Bethesda releases, so if that standard crosses over into everything the publisher puts out gamers are going to be the winners at the end of the day…….. or perhaps John Carmack’s wallet.
