Timothee Besset Leaves id

TTimo's blog has word from Timothee Besset that he's left id Software, where he began as their Linux port maintainer in 2001. His new Dallas-area gig will be in gaming, but not another first-person shooter. He also indicates he was not one of the recently announced layoffs at the RAGE developer, saying: "I resigned from id earlier this week," somewhat cryptically following that with: "Folks who know me well were not terribly surprised, but I suppose I need to put that out there officially." Thanks Ant via LinuxGames.

You have to realise we are talking about iD software here! iD software still means a shitload to a lot of people, Im including myself here. So is it so very strange that we expect the very best from them???? We arent talking about some run-of-the-mill developers here, these guys are legends in the annals of PC Gaming...

I know, I was around for all that too. I'm just saying id doesn't have the same cachet it used to. The rest of the industry has evolved and id is still largely a tech company. Heck, I'd argue gameplay was never really a big focus for them and that they largely lucked out in that area due to the immaturity of the FPS genre back then.
