"This is the Year of Id"

"This is the Year of Id"

Studio director Tim Willits has declared this the "year of Id".

Speaking to PCGamesInsider.biz, the development vet says that thanks to the company's co-development strategy - that sees other studios working on its IP - that it can have all four of its flagship IP active in a short space of time.

The firm has long been working with MachineGames on the Wolfenstein reboot - starting with 2014's The New Order - while Saber Interactive is handling Quake Champions. Then there's Swedish open-world specialists Avalanche Studios working on a sequel to 2011's Rage, while Id itself focuses most of its attention on the upcoming Doom Eternal.

"This is the year of Id because all four of our IP are releasing, kicking ass and doing great. We've been working with Machine Games on Wolfenstein, as well as Quake Champions, Rage 2 and Doom Eternal," Willits said.

"Each of them has a unique feel and fit well in our portfolio, but they have that Id DNA that's weaved through them. The only way for us to achieve that is for us to find the right partners. We work with Machine Games, Avalanche and Saber Interactive on Quake Champions - that allows us to focus the team back at Dallas on Doom. We're hitting on all cylinders and all our brands are exceeding expectations. We're very happy."
