id has always licensed their engines; they make a great deal of money off of it.

Yeah, they used to when they were independent, but they said they were not going to for the Rage engine, but were keeping it for in-house use (Zenimax-owned companies) only...

This isn't entirely true. They stopped licensing when they were independent - id Tech 4 is all pre Zenimax. And they've said they aren't really interested in licensing id Tech 5, though they've backtracked a bit and said they will but only for games published by Zeni, which isn't the same as in-house Zeni-owned companies. Valve would use id Tech 5 if they wanted to, they'd just have to let Zeni publish the title.
