The story told about how he came into the office and talked to me and Carmack about his idea, and we responded with how it was the stupidest idea we'd ever heard – this never happened (Carmack verified this to ShackNews).
After QuakeCon I will announce my future plans
The world’s best players—10 from NA/SA and 10 from EU/CIS—will compete at QuakeCon 2019 to earn their Global Ranking and begin their journey in the Quake Pro League.
The company (and Willits) worked with Saber on Quake Champions years ago, and he says he was impressed with their operation.
“The agility of small teams and the opportunity to get stuff done quickly can’t be overstated,” says Willits. “I’m not saying anything bad about Bethesda—I love them—but smaller teams are exciting and fun. When someone has a good idea, we jump on it. If it doesn’t work out, we change it quick.”
“At my age, you’ve got to work with people you like,” he says. “You’ve got to work on fun stuff. I don’t have anything to prove. I’ve been successful. I’ve made good games. … At the end of the day, I’m literally going to travel around the world to cool as places to work with awesome teams and make video games. Why would I pass this up?”
