Speaking to the Washington Post, id boss Todd Hollenshead said that the firm’s widely reported decision to leave the ESA is unlikely to be a permanent one.

“Our departure from ESA is probably temporary and was not political,” he said.

“It was a question of other priorities this year that we wanted to focus on.”

id quit the ESA in May, following similar moves from Activision, LucasArts and Vivendi.
