id Software's John Carmack is already psyched for Rage 2. In an interview wth Industry Gamers Carmack mentioned he was excited about the future of gaming. In the near future, he's excited about the release of Rage, a game we've been anticipating for years. Despite it not being out yet, Carmack is already planning the sequel, Rage 2.
"I’m very much looking forward to... everything’s pretty much baked in Rage right now. We’ve got several more weeks to polish everything and get feedback in and do our final bits of polishing, but I’m psyched for what we’re going to do in Rage 2, how we’re going to really play up some of the aspects that it turned out weren’t our bread and butter, previously but added to the game. There’s a lot more we can do here that’ll make it fun. I’m looking forward to working on the other id Tech 5 projects. And we’re in research for id Tech 6 graphics, content development…yeah, I’m super busy," said Carmack.
Rage is still two months away from being in my hands but I can tell I'm going to be on-board for a sequel. I played Rage at E3 and was immediately made a believer.
It's not surprising idSoftware is already thinking about the future of the IP but it is surprising they're already talking about it publicly. Do you think it's too soon to be talking Rage 2?
Rage will be released on October 4.
