Bethesda to Publish RAGE

Zenimax has confirmed that the id developed Rage will not be published by EA, and will now instead be published by Bethesda.

Zenimax owns both Bethesda and id, the latter of which was bought in the Summer.

The game is due for a release in 2010 for PS3 and 360.

PR after the break.


December 15, 2009 (Rockville, MD) – ZeniMax Media Inc., parent company of id Software, announced today that it has picked up the publishing rights for RAGE™, the video game under development at id Software.

RAGE will be published by Bethesda Softworks, another ZeniMax subsidiary. As a result, Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: ERTS) will not be involved in the sales and marketing of RAGE. The ongoing development of RAGE is unaffected by this development.
