LOS ANGELES — In a landmark team-up, Electronic Arts will welcome the creator of the first person shooter, id Software, as its newest partner.
“It really is a good match for an indie studio like id, because it gives us access to their world-wide marketing muscle,” said id’s John Carmack during the Electronic Arts E3 press conference Monday.
The team-up will result in a new title, “Rage,” billed as a combination of shooting, driving and open-world.
“It’s a fresh look for us,” Carmack said.
More details will be unveiled at id’s Quakecon in Dallas later this month.
