Bethesda acquires RAGE publishing rights

New IP from id Software joins publisher of Fallout and Elder Scrolls

Zenimax Media has announced that it has acquired the rights to id Software's new IP RAGE.

The game will be published by Zenimax label Bethesda, after acquiring the developer of Doom and Quake earlier this year.

Electronic Arts has originally signed RAGE before the acquisition of id Software. The new first-person shooter was originally scheduled for 2010, but Bethesda's short statement to the press did not mention any release window.

The publisher already has two big first-person shooters lined up for release next year Splash Damage's Brink and Fallout: New Vegas, in development at Obsidian Entertainment.
