Altman founded ZeniMax Media (a portmanteau of the words “Zenith” and “Maximum”) with Bethesda Softworks’ founder Christopher Weaver, as the successor to Bethesda’s then-parent company. With investment from Altman and the backing of several high-profile board members, Bethesda acquired the Fallout franchise from original publisher Interplay in 2004; id Software and its Wolfenstein, Doom, and Quake franchises, in 2009; and developers Arkane Studios and MachineGames in 2010, putting them to work on the Prey and Wolfenstein series.
