Tim Willits leaving id Software

Studio director will end his decades-long run with the company after next week's QuakeCon

One of id Software's longest tenured employees is leaving the company. Studio director Tim Willits today announced his imminent departure on Twitter.

"After 24 years, I've decided to leave id Software after QuakeCon," Willits said. "I've been extremely lucky to work with the best people in the industry on truly amazing games. QuakeCon has been an unbelievable part of my journey and I look forward to seeing everyone at the Gaylord Texan.

"All of the games currently in development are in very good hands, my departure will not affect any planned releases. id Software is packed full of amazing talent that will continue to develop (long into the future) some of the best shooters in the world."

QuakeCon will run July 25 -28 at the Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center in Grapevine, TX. Willits said he will wait until after the show to reveal his next plans.
