"Since our original investment in 2007, ZeniMax Media has tripled the size of its development portfolio and assembled an extraordinary library of major game franchises, along with some of the best development talent in the world," said PEP's Michael Dominguez. Brink, Fallout: New Vegas, RAGE and Doom 4 are all ZeniMax line-ups.
