I rejoiced about competent engineers in Quick News thread, but my friend brought up a good point - owning Id didn't save Bethesda's IPs.


Edit: They also just bought the most prominent Vulkan dev.

awful news... Projects like skywind can end up receiving DMCA notices. Future support for mods in games like elder scrolls and fall out will probably not exist anymore.

These games already have official mod support on Xbox platforms... Even Microsoft UWP games like Halo have official mod support.
