I'MS GOING TO STEAL YOUR FRANCHISE [ Company -> Update ]
Posted by POOPERSCOOPER Fri 08 Oct 2010, 4:06 AM

Shacknews reports that Bethesda has just recieved $150 million fund from some equity thing so be prepared to have any developers or franchises you like to be eaten up;

ZeniMax Media, parent company of the empire including Fallout 3 developer Bethesda Game Studios, publisher Bethesda Softworks, id software and Arkane Studios, yesterday announced receiving a $150 million investment to fund "additional growth."

The money will be going on, ZeniMax says, "increased game development, expanded publishing operations" and, perhaps most interestingly, "strategic acquisitions."

The ZeniMax empire has made a number of solid acquisitions over the past several years, including the Fallout property in 2007, Doom and Quake creator id software in June 2009, the Prey franchise in July 2009 and, most recently, Arx Fatalis developer Arkane Studios in August this year. One can only imagine what'll be next.

The $150 million investment comes from Providence Equity Partners, who previously invested $300 million in ZeniMax back in 2007.
