Doom vet Tim Willits joins World War Z dev Saber Interactive

Former id boss Tim Willits is now the creative chief of World War Z dev Saber Interactive

This is an epochal change, given the long history of Willits with id, for a total duration of 24 years. "It was a good time to move over".

Willits told Fortune on Monday that returning to an independent studio environment - id was acquired by publisher Bethesda 10 years ago - was part of the appeal.

Tim Willits, one of the historical personalities and former head of id Software, has just announced that he has changed company, thus moving to Saber Interactive with the new Chief Creative Officer.

He will be leading the creative vision for the company's five studios worldwide in New Jersey, St Petersburg, Madrid, Belarus and Liverpool. "It's nearly like a marriage, for lack of a better description...." Willits isn't leaving the gaming industry behind though and has now taken up a new position as the Chief Creative Officer at Saber Interactive.

"In a Quake or Doom game, everything has to be perfect-every microsecond".

Saber Interactive's most recent game would be World War Z, although the company has also created NBA Playgrounds and is now working with CD Projekt Red on bringing The Witcher 3 to the Nintendo Switch. Adding, "I'm not saying anything bad about Bethesda - I love them - but smaller teams are exciting and fun". When someone has a good idea, we jump on it. In a brief tweet on his personal Twitter account, Willits said that whilst he's been "extremely lucky to work with the best people in the industry on truly fantastic games", he "decided to leave id Software after QuakeCon". I don't have anything to prove.

"I've made good games. At the end of the day, I'm literally going to travel around the world to cool as places to work with awesome teams and make video games". "Why would I pass this up?"
