Tit-for-Tat Spat Continues as Carmack Goes for Zenimax

Tit-for-Tat Spat Continues as Carmack Goes for Zenimax

In apparent fallout from the spat between Zenimax and Oculus, former CEO of id Software and Oculus employee John Carmack has a new lawsuit filed alleging that Zenimax has never completed the payout of his share of id calling it "sour grapes" over the ongoing tussle between his current and former employers. Carmack is suing Zenimax for $22.5M+.

A portion of the court document reads:

When ZeniMax bought id Software in 2009, it agreed to pay a total of $150 million for that purchase. Now that the final installment of that bill is coming due, ZeniMax is simply refusing to pay. But sour grapes is not an affirmative defense to breach of contract. This Court should enter judgment against ZeniMax for all the money that it agreed to pay Mr. Carmack for the sale of his former company.

A Zenimax representative sent a terse response to the Dallas News regarding the lawsuit:

Apparently lacking in remorse, and disregarding the evidence of his many faithless acts and violations of law, Mr. Carmack has decided to try again.
