id Software Hopes Acquisition News Doesn't Hurt Wolfenstein

id Software being acquired by ZeniMax comes at a slightly awkward time, as Activision is gearing up for the summer release of their final collaboration with the studio, the Raven Software-developed Wolfenstein. When I interviewed id co-founder John Carmack and others this morning, Carmack expressed worry about how this news might affect Wolfenstein.

"Obviously, we hope that Wolfenstein gets a good push coming out," he Carmack, pausing, "but the reality of the situation here is that Activision is not going to be as thrilled about Wolfenstein to the maximum now as they would have been previously, but we still hope that doesn't wind up botching the release of it one way or another."

Addressing the acquisition yesterday, Activision sent a note of congratulations and mentioned the upcoming release of Wolfenstein. "We are excited to continue our partnership this summer with the launch of id Software’s Wolfenstein," the company said. "We congratulate id and wish them well on their new endeavors."

The buzz on Wolfenstein appears to be mixed. Where do you fall?
