John Carmack Resigns From id Software

Via ArsTechnica:

“John Carmack, who has become interested in focusing on things other than game development at id, has resigned from the studio,” id Studio Director Tim Willits said in an interview with IGN. “John’s work on id Tech 5 and the technology for the current development work at id is complete, and his departure will not affect any current projects.”

End of an era at id Software. He is moving on to work full time at Oculus as CTO, so let’s see what sort of magic happens there.
