In its statement - viewable in full on Twitter - Bethesda said it was "proud to continue the values and principles Robert taught us" and expressed its "deepest condolences to Robert's family." [his wife Lynda Carter and their two children], who are part of our family and have always treated us as part of theirs. "
Current and former ZeniMax employees — not to mention subsidiaries such as id Software, Arkane, Tango Gameworks, and MachineGames — shared their condolences and memories.
In the early months of wfh, Altman emailed the entire company weekly and the words he offered brought normalcy and comfort to many of us in a difficult time. Even in such a large company, his presence was a constant for those at all levels and his loss is deeply felt. https://t.co/VH4vGmTnnA

I only met Robert once during his visit to the studio. However, in almost 8 years at id/Bethesda/Zenimax, I can say without a doubt that Robert was a great leader and truly believed in what we were doing at id and other Zenimax studios. We will miss him. https://t.co/NXGCJJoa6m

It is difficult for me, my friends. I've been with Bethesda for almost 12 years and I'm not sure many people can say they were known by name leading such a large organization. But it wasn't unique to me; this is the experience of so many of my colleagues. My condolences to all. https://t.co/lKGFkbb67O
