Todd Hollenshead, CEO of id Software, leaves company

CEO of the studio since 1996 – after the departure of Jay Wilbur for Epic -, Todd Hollenshead has decided to leave the studio, according to Bethesda:

After many years with the studio, Todd Hollenshead decided to leave id Software to pursue other personal interests. While Todd was not part of the development teams, he was an integral part of id Software’s success as the business head of the studio and we wish him the very best in his future endeavors.

Even if there is no other information about the reasons of his decision, it is most likely that it’s due to the problems of the studio with the development of Doom 4, which was set by Bethesda as the highest and unique priority of id Software.
