Enemy Territory: Quake Wars Summary
Based on afrom the Hong Kong stock exchange (kindly reported on by an intrepid ), it seems that developer Splash Damage is currently in the process of being sold to, of all things, a Chinese chicken supplier.
Studio id Software will be supporting the current stable of franchises for the foreseeable future, which is already more "than we can exploit."
John Carmack doesn't want 5 teams at id as 3 "is scary enough." They've got Quake, Doom, Wolfenstein and "hopefully we can add Rage onto that".
