Yeah, sure. We're still waiting for id to admit they fucked up giving the Wolfenstein MP to Endrant. It's been already 3 months since Sokal said that we'd get a patch to fix all the issues (a miracle is needed there, and that doesn't include how they could fuck so badly one of the best MP games ever), so excuse me if I don't give any credit to id nowadays.
In the past there has been the whisper of a chance that Carmack could crack a little and reveal that some aspects of development for (title here) hit rough spots... but id Software's not an independent company any more. ZeniMax (and its investors) would balk, and probably seek to have Carmack fired or censured. His hands are tied. Besides, from all released figures Wolfenstein sold well south of 50,000 copies on the PC - any support offered after the initial release would be an act of goodwill that probably isn't merited given the sales numbers.
Not that they've really earned much after Quake 3, though. All their games (in-house or otherwise) since then have been decent at best, tech demos at the worst, far, far away from what they were releasing in the 90's.
Quake II wasn't any great shakes, though a lot of that weakness could be chalked up to the one-two punch of a buggy initial release (remember the fun of all those subsequent Point Releases?) and some of the worst sound design in a high-profile title in the last fifteen years. Quake III was anarchic and beautifully polished, but Team Arena should have been free, and Doom 3 was ultimately a promising but airless and misguided effort. As for third-party titles, RtCW was a little schizophrenic but not a discredit to the series, Quake 4 was a dud in every sense of the word, and... *sigh* well, you already mentioned Wolfenstein. The material released so far doesn't give me hope that Rage will have anything to offer that Fallout 3 and Borderlands don't already...
And no dedicated servers?. Sure, very True PC of you. Go have a party with IW to celebrate the lagfest that is MW2 and that Rage will probably end up being.
That move is raging idiocy. "The great thing is we won’t have to be a pioneer on that" response is damned close to "Let them eat cake."
