Internal strife at id has led to the dismissal of Paul Steed. Commenting on the matter in his .plan file, id's John Carmack explained the firing was related to an internal dispute over the nature of the company's next title. Though a decision was made, to create a new sequel to the original id hit Doom, the fallout of the battle appears to be the loss of Paul Steed. "Kevin [Cloud] and Adrian [Carmack] fired Paul Steed in retaliation, over my opposition," John Carmack wrote, "Paul has certainly done things in the past that could be grounds for dismissal, but this was retaliatory for him being among the 'conspirators'. I happen to think Paul was damn good at his job, and that he was going to be one of the most valuable contributors to Doom.
