John Carmack: No New id IP for Years

John Carmack expresses doubts that id Software will launch any new IPs over the next decade in an interview with Official PlayStation Magazine as reported by Computer and Video Games. "I doubt we're going to do another IP. It's scary to say it, but maybe not in the next decade even, because we want to support Wolfenstein, Doom and Quake - and hopefully we can add Rage onto that - and I don't want five teams here. Three is scary enough," he says. "Obviously if Rage is a success then we'll want to do a Rage 2." Given the lengthy development cycles of modern games, this is not a very surprising admission, and if RAGE is released next year, it will be id's first new IP in 15 years, as QUAKE was released in 1996.

I wish ID would basically move on from their old IP's. Make an RPG, make a racing game. Don't make another FPS.

Err, apparently Tumbler hasn't looked at Rage much. It's got indoor areas, yes, but it's also got large, supposedly free-roam outdoor parts as well. Racing game? Why yes, that's actually a large component of Rage.

Yes, iD's made pretty much the same games since they did the original wolfie. They're leaving the corridors (for the most part) and trying outdoors, and if the framerate holds up, it'll be yet another technical marvel. Not expecting the story to hold up, but I DO expect that the gameplay will be rock-solid.

So yeah, Tumbler, iD IS trying something new. They aren't quite ready to completely step out of the genre they created, but for once, they ARE trying to make a DIFFERENT game.
