Bethesda (and parent company ZeniMax) has gone on a major shopping spree over the past few years, expanding far beyond Oblivion and Fallout, swallowing up the creators of Doom and Resident Evil. And it doesn't look like they're stopping there.
The director of great video games old (Resident Evil) and new (Vanquish) is going to get out of the business of directing games after his next unannounced title. Instead, famed creator Shinji Mikami will be focusing on things more... presidential.
Quake and Doom makers id Software may be treading well worn post-apocalyptic territory in Rage, but for all the grotesque mutants and post-cataclysmic disaster, this Mad Max-style story of survival looks like... fun.
