It has been announced that id Software, the creator of Doom and Quake, has been acquired for an undisclosed amount by Bethesda Softworks, a company owned by Zenimac Media Inc.
If you wonder, key employees have signed up long term contracts and will stay on board to develop the next-generation games (notably on iPhone). According to id’s CEO, the company needed more resources to grow their business. As of late, we think that id had “only” 65 employees. The whole company was effectively smaller than many game development teams in the industry.RELATED
