Hollenshead leaves ID
After 17 years Tod Hollenshead leaves ID Software. I just found when searching for some ID news. I think this is connected to overall organisation crisis at the company after failing to deliver Doom franchise in time. I was writing a post on this blog a while ago, linking an article from Kotaku. Id Software will hopefully re-organise its team and get more focused on the direction and delivering on a settled deadline. One would think that loosing the burden of developping new engine will make it much easier to make a new game in shorter time. As ID had chosen to use the same idTech5 engine used on Rage for making Doom 4, although with few modifications. It seems even this did not help.
