ID Software: New Game

ID Software: New Game, New Engine

Published On May 31, 2007 | By Luke De'ath | News

Todd Hollenshead from ID Software has announced that the famous games developer is creating a brand-new franchise which apparently isn’t another DooM or Quake.

ID CEO spoke with GamesIndustry.biz and commented:

“We are working on an all-new franchise: it’s not Doom, it’s not Quake, it’s not Wolfenstein, it’s not Enemy Territory, it’s not even Commander Keen!”

He went on to say:

“It is a new id brand with an all-new John Carmack engine and I think that when we show it to people, once again they’ll see, just like they saw when we first showed Doom 3, that John Carmack still has a lot of magic left.”

Todd Hollenshead also commented on there new direction:

“Our first task at id is as a single studio developer. That’s really where everything spawns from. Because John Carmack is a programming genius, who in my opinion is unequalled in video games today, he makes a great technology that we can use across a wide range of applications and different games within our suite of franchises.

The new stuff that we’re working on does have a brand new engine that John has been working on, actually is still working on today. We can’t really talk any details about it; we’ll see about when the timing is right for an announcement. We like to be able to talk about stuff that we can show at the same time and it’s not really ready to show yet.”

After the 2004 release of the graphical masterpiece which was DooM3 we’re very excited to see what John Carmack and the guys at ID Software have in store for us. What game would you like to see? Let us know via the comment box below.
