The lights are on
Since 1996, Todd Hollenshead has been the man at the top of Id Software. Today, that era comes to a close.
IGN has reported, and Bethesda has confirmed, that Hollenshead has left the company. Hollenshead served as Id's CEO until the company was purchased by Zenimax in 2009, at which point his title was changed to president.
Doom 4, the studio's current project, has been under development for some time. At QuakeCon last year, company co-founder John Carmack stated that the game would be done when it's done, but that work was still underway.

I definitely respect Id as a whole, so best wishes to him in his future endeavors!
Hopefully they still make another RAGE!
"Would be done when its done. " that's super informative :P
Wow. An end of an era. I wonder if the games will change at all.
Just as well, ID is no longer the company they used to be. Good choice for him to move on. I wish him well.
ID is breaking, just like epic games... We all know this is coming.
Aww, he's been working there for such a long time. I wish Todd the best!
