Carmack Suing ZeniMax for 22 Million Dollars - briefly
(hx) 02:31 PM EST - Mar,11 2017 - Post a comment / read (2)
Back in early February, a Dallas jury awarded ZeniMax Media 500 million dollars to be paid by Oculus, its owners, and the former CEO. John Carmack, co-creator of the Doom series, immediately lambasted this decision in a long Facebook post. Carmack had a lot of stakes in the decision as he was one of the original founders of the Oculus and its super successful Kickstarter campaign. Now the prolific developer is suing ZeniMax for 22 million dollars for unpaid money when the media giant bought id Software back in 2009. While it's true Carmack is no longer with id, he left after the buyout in 2013 to become the Chief Technology Officer for the Oculus.

3.6 million units sold. Between R&D costs, salaries, production costs, I doubt they even made 50 million surplus... To pay what court ordered, they would need a deal or a loan, or a miracle. They should just go default unless they can get rid of that 500 million fine. They are not going to get far anyway. Oculus Rift is going to have to be pulled from the market, and competition is getting ahead of them anyway. And there is that hefty price tag on a market now split between 3 competitors, and Sony just started...

It appears that the corporate greed truly has no limits.

I guess Carmonkey could get up to 50-75 (with damages an interest). (?)
