According to a press release by ZeniMax Media, the Parent company of my favorite game studio, Bethesda Softworks, has acquired the id Software studio. id Software is best known for their titles DOOM, Quake, and Wolfenstein.
This is, right now, only a financial pairing. iD and Bethesda will remain separate development groups but I can envision a co-development project in the future. Imagine the open environment and scale of game play that Bethesda is known for in their Elder Scrolls and Fallout Titles, mixed with the fast pace and multi-player capabilities of Quake. This could be very interesting. At the least though, I hope the financial backing from ZeniMax should allow iD to produce new titles.
