Microsoft today announced they have acquired Bethesda Softworks parent company ZeniMax Media for $7.5 billion. The list of studios includes Doom developer id Software.
id Software co-founder and programmer John Carmack via his Twitter account has shown interest in returning to some of his older titles now that his former company is owned by Microsoft.
"Great! I think Microsoft has been a good parent company for gaming IPs, and they don’t have a grudge against me, so maybe I will be able to re-engage with some of my old titles," said Carmack.
