ZeniMax Media, parent company of Bethesda Softworks has today announced the acquisition of MachineGames, the Swedish developer formed in 2009 by the founding members of Starbreeze Studios, the team behind The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay and The Darkness.

MachineGames is setting to work on an unannounced project for Bethesda, powered by id Tech 5, the same engine behind id Software's upcoming Rage. Studio CEO Jerk Gustafsson will oversee development as Executive Producer on the new project. “MachineGames has assembled a dedicated team that has extensive experience working together to produce quality games. We are excited to create a new AAA title for gamers on id Tech 5 that will push the game development envelope,” said Gustafsson.

MachineGames joins a group of high-profile development studios under the Bethesda Game Studios umbrella, including id Software, Arkane Studios and Shinji Mikami's Tango Gameworks. "MachineGames shares our passion for creating ground-breaking gaming experiences,” said Robert Altman, Chairman and CEO of ZeniMax Media. "We are excited to have these accomplished industry veterans join ZeniMax Media’s group of world-class studios."
