    We have reported of the Zenimax purchase of id Software before. Originally, the rights to publish the post-apocalyptic shooter Rage remained with EA, but Bethesda's publishing arm has now bought out said rights, GameSpot reports.<blockquote>After Zenimax announced the acquisition, EA said that it had retained the rights to publish Rage, which has not yet been dated for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, and Mac. However, that changed today, as Zenimax announced that Rage will now be published by its subsidiary Bethesda Softworks.

    Zenimax explicitly noted that EA will no longer be involved in any way with the game's sale or marketing. Bethesda's parent company further stated that Rage's development will not be affected by the change in publisher.</blockquote>This means Bethesda has an outside shot at publishing a decent outhouse game for the first time in its publishing career.

    Thanks ][avok.

    Rage will suck because it's being published by Beth.

    I was looking forward to buying this game, now that Zenimax is publishing it, I won't buy it.

    I was also considering buying this game because of it's PA theme.

    It might turn out to be good but I really don't want to support Zenimax Bethesda in any way.

    I want the company to fail and it's people to be fired, being forced to take on jobs outside the gaming industry which they so love to rip off for loads of cash.

    Yeah I know that is rather childish, but I really don't like them.

    Edit: About? I meant 'outside'

    No, IMO it's a reasonable choice.

    fuck I am really torn between how awesome this game looks, and how much I hate Bethesda.

    I would normally agree on beth hate here, but then i remembered that the previous publisher is ea :evil:
    It's like choosing between jumping off a cliff and jumping of a tower. The result is still pretty much the same!

    You'd want something to financially ruin a large amount of people's lives due to a petty rage over a video game series' sequel that you view as lackluster?

    That is pretty childish.

    Anyway, I need to see gameplay before I decide on giving this a chance. Anyone got a video of it?

    Well I wish them to find a job afterwards outside game development don't I? :P

    Seriously, Bethesda is not that good a developer, their 'disappearance' would not be a catastrophe.

    Eh, all the corporations are run by reptilians.

    In the end, Zeni-Beth is no worse than Microsoft or Walmart. They're all designed to do the same thing. Some are more convincing (deceptive) than others.

    Not spending money on any bethesda or zenimax products again, lest I want to support the new EA that's coming out into the light. I will download it though :)

    It takes true arbitrary grit to work up anger at this. Well done, men.

    Man, that's sick. It's not the fault of regular workers that Fallout 3 was dumbed down.

    same here. id software has one of the most talented team in the game industry. they rule in fps genre for 15 years. they have almost god status now. so if id software is the cake, bethesda is the shit - u can't mix it together.
