John Carmack has revealed that, even though the id Software has just been bought out by Bethesda parent Zenimax Media, it won't change his plans to release plenty of iPhone games.
In fact, as well as working on a series of new titles for the platform, Carmack is planning to bring nearly all of id Software's back catalogue to the iPhone.
Speaking in an interview with Touch Arcade
Carmack mentioned that he has great plans for the iPhone platform and, in addition to making Wolfenstein 3D
and the just-released Doom: Resurrection
for the iPhone, he plans to release a glut of other Doom
That includes an upcoming remake of the original Doom
games called Doom Classic
, which will be expanded with downloable content packs that'll add in everything from Doom 2
, Thy Flesh Consumed
, Final Doom
and The Master Levels
and will come with WiFi multiplayer. Also on the list are Quake
and Quake 2
iPhone ports, the Wolfenstein RPG
and Doom RPG
. Carmack also hints at a possible Quake 3
port, but doesn't commit to the project.
Nor is is all just remakes either - a Doom 2 RPG
will follow shortly after the original game and id Software is currently in talks about making Doom ++
- an entirely new and modernised Doom
game with new levels and an original story. Even Rage
will be getting a brand new iPhone game too.
