Robert A. Altman, the co-founder and CEO of ZeniMax, has died

‘He was an extraordinary leader, and an even better human being’

Bethesda announced that Robert A. Altman, the co-founder and CEO of ZeniMax, has passed away.

“He was a true visionary, friend, and believer in the spirit of people and the power of what they could accomplish together,” Bethesda said. “He was an extraordinary leader, and an even better human being.”

In its statement – viewable in full on Twitter – Bethesda said it was “proud to carry on the values and principles Robert taught us,” and extended its “deepest sympathies to Robert’s family [his wife Lynda Carter and two children], who are a part of our family and have always treated us as part of theirs.”

Current and former employees of ZeniMax – to say nothing of subsidiaries including id Software, Arkane, Tango Gameworks, and MachineGames – have shared their condolences and memories.
