Wild Speculation: id Software Gearing Up for Quake 5
Pete Hines is wasting no time getting the recently sold id Software up to snuff. They’re currently building up a 3rd software development team. Bethesda’s head honcho said in an inverview with TechRadar:
“They’d like to start building up a full third team and, as a result of this deal, they’ll be able to do that more quickly than they could have previously with the additional resources they have to work with now,”
id Software, much like Blizzard, is known for few, yet quality, games and since the new Wolfenstein is out soon and they’ve currently got two other teams working on DOOM 4 and Rage…I can only speculate that the mythic third team will be working on Quake 5. To hammer the point home, Mr. Hines also was quoted as saying:
“We expect id will keep doing what they’ve always been doing,”
Nice way of saying ‘more of the same’. What do you all think?

I sit upon my throne as the owner/shogun of this site, WatchPlayRead. But it wasn't always so. I too have had blogspots, I've done other community blogs, I've even written professionally for other sites out there...yet none of them provided the content I had a real passion for.
It is then that I became tired of being a small cog in a big machine, and of writing about nothing but game news after game news article and the periphery that comes from such schlock, like knowing who Michael Pachter and Bobby Kotick are.
I decided to start MediaWhoreNetwork.com and ran up my post count there for about 2 years, commenting about any and everything that I wanted to. I even started a weekly podcast that I feel has come into its own.
It wasn't until earlier this year that I realized that having the word "whore" in your URL might be a bit limiting to my potential audience. I then made the website and its branding move over to WatchPlayRead.com.
