At Gamescom 2016, Guinness World Records recognized id Software as the longest running FPS shooter developer of all time. Not only this, Wolfenstein is now officially recognized as the longest running FPS.
id’s Director, Tim Willits, said that this is indeed a honor to be recognized. The development team is humbled and thanks the community.
Working on first-person shooters for 24 years has been very exciting but also challenging. Our secret to success is focusing on the core components of each franchise first, ensuring they are great, and then building upon them with new and modern features and designs.
Luckily for us, first-person shooters are just fun and will never go out of style. If we can continue to build upon what makes first-person shooters great, we can continue to be successful well into the future.
Meanwhile, the longest running eSports tournament record was also broken by id Software thanks to QuakeCon. id Software and Bethesda are in disposal of a Legacy like no other.
Their games are multi million dollar franchises that have a home in the hearts of millions of fans across the globe.
