In a new tweet, the ex-head of id Software and all-round industry icon, John Carmack, has announced that his on-going legal dispute with Zenimax is now over. Which, if you've been across it involves the sale of id to Zenimax and John's departure to work for Oculus on VR.

Where he was accused of stealing VR code and taking to Oculus, and he counter-sued noting that Zenimax still owed him $22.5 million from the id Software sale. Although the tweet doesn't go into any detail, it implies that Zenimax have paid John what he was owed and that both parties have dropped all legal claims.



Also, it notes that the ongoing battle between Zenimax and Oculus - detailed here - is still ongoing.

I kinda forgot this was happening. I'm not sure what the practical upshot this is for id or for Oculus and how it will affect us down here in the video gaming land but I'm sure it's good news for him that it's resolved.

I would much prefer JC spend the majority of his time participating in game-related things instead of navigating legal things. Good to hear!
