Two of the most acclaimed game development studios of all time are joining forces. ZeniMax Media, parent company of Fallout 3 and Elder Scrolls development studio Bethesda Softworks, announced today that it is purchasing legendary Doom and Wolfenstein studio id.

n an interview with Kotaku, id co-founder John Carmack, id CEO Todd Hollenshead and ZeniMax CEO Robert Altman said the purchase will change none of the principles or principals of id and Bethesda but will allow id to grow like it never has before.

Yeah, good news... Zenimax seems to support its developers and keep their hands off, as far as we know.

I doubt they´re ever going to move away from that damn GameBryo engine they license.
Think their tools and custom systems for handling the worlds, quests and everything in there are too deeply rooted in that, they´ve used it in everything since morrowind.

But hey, maybe they can get some pointers on how to tweak up the renderer? hehe..
Think the biggest eyesore with Bethesda games is the animation systems though, transitioning between states and all that..

Well, Doom 3 (also Prey/Quake 4) had a horrible plastic look. The creature shots of the idTech6 that have surfaced show the same exact thing...

I sure hope so.

Bethesda's gamebryo monstrosity is one of the crappiest engines in recent memory. It was clunky in Morrowind back in 2001 and they've just glued more crap onto it over the years.

On the other hand, ET:QW showed that id's engines are making some pretty massive improvements in performance and visual quality for large levels. And what I've seen so far of idTech6 has been very impressive.
