ZeniMax buys ID Software

That puts Bethesda (The Elder Scrolls, Fallout 3, et al) under the same banner as ID Software (Doom, Quake, all of that), plus the PR bonus of having John Carmack on the mantlepiece.

Definitely a feather in the cap for Zenimax, who now have a stable of some of the strongest brands and two of the top games development studios.

  1. They’ve had new names for a few years now, but the latest versions are still being licensed out for big-ticket games. That’s a pretty lucrative industry.
