id Tech 5 engine is only for games published by Bethesda

Posted on Friday, August 13 2010 @ 20:35:56 CEST by

While id Software's previous game engines were licensed to many third party game developers, this will change with the firm's latest id Tech 5 engine. CEO Todd Hollenshead explained the new game engine will not be licensed out to third party developers and publishers, it will only be available for games published by ZeniMax and Bethesda Softworks.
Following id Software's acquisition by ZeniMax Media in 2009, however, Hollenshead said that the technology would be reserved for games published by ZeniMax and Bethesda Softworks.

"It's going to be used within ZeniMax, so we're not going to license it to external parties," Hollenshead told Eurogamer at QuakeCon 2010 in Dallas today.

"It's like, look, this is a competitive advantage and we want to keep it within games we publish - not necessarily exclusively to id or id titles, but if you're going to make a game with id Tech 5 then it needs to be published by Bethesda, which I think is a fair thing."
