Since 1995, Tim Willits has had a hand in pretty much every major id Software title to come out. Willits started his tenure with the company as a level designer on games like The Ultimate Doom and the first three Quake games. When the company was bought out by ZeniMax, Willits stayed with id Software and was the creative director on the modern Doom remake and Quake Champions.

Willits, who said he would be leaving the studio after Quakecon next weekend, has served 24 years at the studio made famous for Wolfenstein 3D, Doom, Quake and Enemy Territory.

As reported on GameDaily.biz, the Studio Director of recent and current id Software projects formally announced his departure on his personal Twitter.

We wish him the best of luck, and praise must be given for all of his work at id - especially in creating some of the best shooters of all time!

Though he's had an impressive run, Willits butted heads with other id Software veterans, including co-founders John Romero and John Carmack, in 2017.

Willits will attend QuakeCon in Dallas, Texas later this month from July 25 to July 28.
