The studio behind Chronicles of Riddick is working on a new "AAA title for gamers" using the technology behind upcoming titles Rage, Doom 4 and Quake, Zenimax said today.

Why would the company behind Bethesda be telling us about MachineGames? Because they also confirmed this morning what we reported last week: it now owns the European development studio.

It makes a lot of sense for MachineGames to fold into Zenimax, which also owns Bethesda Game Studios, id Software, Arkane Studios and Tango Gameworks. It puts the Swedish company with a group of developers that specialize in role-playing games and shooters. It also makes me wonder how much longer it's going to be until Zenimax becomes the next Ubisoft, THQ or Take-Two.
