Fallout, Dishonored parent company trademarks Void Engine
Name of new game engine powered by id Tech trademarked by Bethesda parent company Zenimax.
Bethesda parent company Zenimax has filed a trademark application for "Void Engine Powered by Id Tech," suggesting the company has created an all-new game engine. The news comes as the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are soon to be released, though it is unclear if the new engine is related to the next-generation systems.
The trademark application, filed November 8 with the United States Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO), covers "software game engine used to design and develop computer games," among other things. A Bethesda representative told GameSpot, "we don't really comment on trademark filings."
id Tech is the name of a series of game engines created by the Bethesda-owned id Software. The latest iteration, id Tech 5, is powering next-generation games like Wolfenstein: The New Order, The Evil Within, and Doom 4.
CBS Corp. CEO Leslie Moonves is a member of the Zenimax board of directors.
