ZeniMax co-founder Robert Altman has handed away on the age of 74, Bethesda as we speak introduced.
Trade icon Robert Altman has died, forsaking a decades-long string of video games and leisure. A former lawyer, Altman co-founded ZeniMax in 1999 and created the Bethesda mum or dad firm alongside Bethesda Softworks founder Chris Weaver. An eternal legacy of interactive content material ensued, solidified with big-name franchises like The Elder Scrolls, finally branching off into the multi-studio community that features studios like MachineGames, Arkane, and id.
Altman was reportedly well-liked at Bethesda and key trade figures have chimed in to recount their experiences with the transformative CEO. Bethesda will not be the identical with out his steering, and we might see the corporate shift after Altman’s loss and the latest Microsoft acquisition.
Random little bit of trivia: Altman was married to Surprise Girl’s Lynda Carter.
