DOOM 3 Q&As

Round up the usual suspects, there are new DOOM 3 Q&As online on GameSpot, GameSpy, and IGN, each including answers from Todd Hollenshead and Tim Willits, with the middle of the three articles also adding Marty Stratton to the mix to reduce the sensation of deja vu. Here's a bit from the GameSpy Q&A on the laurel-resting they are engaged in now that DOOM 3 is done:

Tim Willits: Our very talented art staff has already started on the next game. Kenneth (Scott, id Software artist) is leading the team, working on some proof-of-concept stuff, and he's working on some conceptual art, and doing some really great stuff. So those guys have already started on the next game, which is awesome. Of course, a few of us will take vacations here and there, but we're not a rock band (laughs); we don't take off for six months after we go on tour. This is our job, and we've already started on the next title.

Yea well most companies don't have the luxury of only working 8 to 10 hour days in the final month or 2 because they don't have to meet fixed deadlines. Nor do they have the luxury of being able to say "when it's done".

Most developers have to work 14 to 24 hour days (split shifting sometimes) for 6 to 8 weeks straight to get projects done on time. So they tend to take 2 to 4 weeks off once the game has shipped.

John Carmack has stated that he typically comes in at 4 PM, and leaves at 4 AM, 6 days a week (or did I switch AM and PM?).

Hardly "taking it easy" as you insinuated.
