Bethesda to Publish id's Rage

By Alice O'Connor, Dec 15, 2009 7:38am PST id software and Bethesda Softworks parent company ZeniMax Media today announced that it has acquired the publishing rights to id's post-apocalyptic shooter Rage.

Rage was originally to be published by Electronic Arts through EA Partners, a deal that remained in place after ZeniMax snapped up the Doom and Quake creator in June.

Bethesda Softworks will now be publishing Rage. "As a result, Electronic Arts Inc. will not be involved in the sales and marketing of RAGE," said a press statement. "The ongoing development of RAGE is unaffected by this development."

The announcement unfortunately gave no further indication of when Rage's PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 release might be. "I can say that production is going well," is all id software's Tim Willits could tell us during an interview at QuakeCon in August.
