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. Willits has announced he's joining Saber Interactive as the Chief Creative Officer.
'It was a good time to move over, ' said Willits of his massive move.
The Id alum revealed he was leaving the Doom creator in July, though details on where the 24-year vet would be going were not revealed. "It's nearly like a marriage, for lack of a better description...."
Willits is reportedly excited to be able to work with small teams and develop independently. While it had already released three-hit games (Commander Keen, Wolfenstein, and Doom), it had not been the juggernaut it is today. Despite having more than 500 employees around the world, Saber Interactive remains an independent studio. When someone has a good idea, we jump on it.
Saber Interactive is now developing The Witcher 3 on Nintendo Switch.
KitGuru Says: Saber Interactive might not be as renowned as id Software but perhaps with the right leadership, it could be eventually. "If it doesn't work out, we change it quick". Even in games far removed from his experience, Willits said his years of working on games where "every microsecond" is tuned to perfection will help him no matter what genre he's working in. I don't have anything to prove. "I've been successful. I've made good games", he said. "Why would I pass this up?"
