Carmack talks up Zenimax purchase of id, three new titles

When it was announced that Zenimax had bought id reactions were pretty positive... unless you were John Romero. It seems that the guys at id agree with the majority of us that being bought by Zenimax was a pretty good thing as it has given the company more money to develop with and more staff to do that developing. At QuakeCon id Software co-founder John Carmack spoke about it all.

“We have more resources to make steps that we wouldn’t make [if] left to our own,” he said during a panel at the event. “For people playing games, the [ZeniMax acquisition] is such a pure win. There’s no downside to this at all. We are still down here in Texas, they are leaving us alone, we are still building our products here.”

So it's still id and nothing is changing, but what is the legendary development company going to do with all these new resources? Why they're going to bring out three new AAA games, that's what. What these games will be is unclear, but evidently they aren't short of ideas as Carmack claims that id now has "the problem of having more good IPs" than it can develop.

“We are staffing up a third team internally. We will eventually be producing three AAA titles," he said, according to Develop. “The big question is what are those three IPs going to be? Is it going to be a Rage 2, a Wolfenstein title, a Quake title? We really don’t know yet."

I like the idea of more of those classic franchises, but I'm hoping to see a new IP out of the developer as well.
