Id Software President Departs After 17 Years with Company

Posted on June 26, 2013 AT 03:32pm

After serving 13 years as id Software’s CEO, then another five as president after ZeniMax Media acquired the studio, Todd Hollenshead is leaving the company to pursue “other personal interests.”

“After many years with the studio, Todd Hollenshead decided to leave id Software to pursue other personal interests,” Pete Hines, vice president of PR and marketing at Bethesda, told IGN. “While Todd was not part of the development teams, he was an integral part of id Software’s success as the business head of the studio, and we wish him the very best in his future endeavors.”

Hollenshead has yet to comment on his departure. It’s unknown whether leaving has anything to do with the company’s development struggles. It was reported in April that a sequel to Rage was canned in order for the company to focus on Doom 4—a project originally announced as in development in 2008, and completely restarted in 2011.
