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."

Hopefully it's an offshoot of idTech that they're using for RPGs. BGS will find a way to muck it all up with poor animations and jank.

As long as it doesn't come at the cost of modding support, I'm all for a new engine. Didn't Pete Hines say in some interview early this year that they'd keep on using Creation Engine, though? So this might not be related to Bethesda Game Studios franchises at all.

Since Arkane is going with CryEngine I guess this engine migh take time before it completed and used for games development.

but at least now we know that id is doing something.
