Bethesda Acquires Rage Publishing Rights
Written By
View author's profile is reporting that Zenimax Media, Bethesda's business arm, has acquired the rights to publish the upcoming id Software title, Rage.

Bethesda purchased id Software earlier on this year but the publishing agreement with EA Partners had already been made. This new deal will hand the publishing rights from EA over to Bethesda.

Rage made waves as this year's GamesCom in Cologne and not only impressed us enough to give it a glowing report, but it was also our game of the show.

I want to hear some sort of announcement for Doom 4 for 360. I doubt I was the only one disappointed by Quake 4 :/

Really looking forward to this game. Hopefully this will speed things up a bit as far as a release date is concerned..

definitely going to get this preordered. game looks insane and the switch from EA to Bethesda is an added bonus. only question that remains unanswered (based on the review) is whether there will be CO-OP. Either way tho this game should kick some serious ass!

@5, speeding up a release date isn't always a good thing. I'd rather wait an extra month and get a kick-ass game than have it released sooner as a mediocre one.

@ 3, Doom 4 on 360 will be a letdown as was Quake 4. This is due to Doom most of the time being a tech showcase on PC. I often just see the 360 versions as just ports.

@#12 No, Borderlands really isn't very similar to Fallout at all. And as Rage is a pure shooter, it probably won't be too similar to either of them.

I'm very much looking forward to this though.

Bethesda needs to hurry up with a new fallout game... or just release new DLC. But they most likely wont make more Fallout 3 DLC so I'm sad

Borderlands to me was the biggest rip off game. I mean that in the sense that it took key elements from lots of great games, & mashed it into 1 sick game. Not many devs can do that properly. So props to gearbox on borderlands aka Crackout of Diablolands.

This game looks great. But i honestly can't see this as a must play game if its strictly shooter. The shooter genre has enough combatants these days. Unless they do something extremely innovative i'm gonna pass this one up.
