Quake 4 is also purported to be emphasizing Single Player.
I don't know, but suspect, that Splash Damage, the developer behind Enemy Territory, and the group brought in to take care of the Doom 3 MP maps, will be working on a new multiplayer game using the new Doom 3 engine.
The game is looking to only be on 3 CD's, not 6. Hopefully they've got some major compression going on there!
I'm pretty tired of the "id is an engine company not a game company" line. It's overused, and just not true. All I can say, is that the combined titles of Doom, Quake, Quake 2, Quake 3 vastly overshadow any other games I've played, in terms of the fun I've had, and the time I've spent playing them. I love GL Quake, jDoom, Quake2, and revisit them all the time. Just IMHO, but every 12 year old and their brother spouts out that line. Just played out.
