VentureBeat had an interview with John Carmack about the sale of id Software to ZeniMax Media and learned that the game developer is planning to add a third major development team:
JC: We already had a plan in place. We will add a third major development team. We started with the Quake Live team, which had less than a dozen people. The idea was to get them through the Quake Live project. Then we will take them through an intermediate step of doing multiplayer work for Rage (right) and Doom 4. They can get familiar with our technology there. Then we will take one of our main intellectual properties and assign it to them. It’s not clear what that is. And that’s all we wanted: three teams. It’s not as if we wanted to create four, five and six teams. We have two teams doing big titles now. We have our mobile teams doing other work. But we’ll add that third major team over a period of time that we can foresee.
