If its cross-Gen it just means it will look alot more lame for us that build and tweak computers to play games at there highest end . But I guss the gamers that know nothing about games other than you need to plug this in need to have something to keep them from mainking there moms nutts, still a shame however.
John Carmack of id says that a follow-up to the upcoming postapocalyptic action game is due after Doom 4--and might appear on both current- and next-gen consoles.
LOS ANGELES--One of the centerpieces of Bethesda Softworks' booth at the 2011 Electronic Entertainment Expo is Rage. The forthcoming sci-fi shooter will arrive on the PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 on September 13 and is being developed by Doom creator id Software.
But even though Rage hasn't even hit store shelves, id's head of technology John Carmack is already talking sequels. Speaking today with GameSpot, the legendary engineer said that while still putting the finishing touches on the first game, his team is laying a foundation for the follow-up.
When asked if Rage 2 was being planned, Carmack answered with a flat "Yes," adding, "We haven't got a formal, official announcement, but we're certainly headed in that direction."
That said, don't expect Rage 2 anytime soon. Carmack said that as soon as Rage goes gold, id's core engineering team--led by Carmack--will transfer over to the Doom 4 team to shepherd it to market. Once that is completed, they will turn their attention to the next Rage game.
Given that Doom 4 doesn't have a release date, it may be some time until Rage 2 sees the light of day. But even though Carmack said that he expects the sequel to be based on the same engine as the first Rage, he hinted it might appear on next-generation consoles, as well as current platforms.
When asked if Rage 2 would appear on next-gen consoles, Carmack said, "I am working on next-generation engine technology and what we'll be doing with graphics when we start really rethinking it. It's likely that the project after Doom 4, the next major one, will be designed around being cross-generational."

I didn't find that FPF (first-person-flashlight) business much fun. I hope they don't put any other stupidity in this next one, like having to tie your shoelace, or hike up your pants. I mean, sure making your player trip over it's shoelace, or clean it's stained underwear "...it sooooo ADDs to the realism dude! - fanboy", but it ain't no fun to play.
Holy crap. I remember buying DOOM the day it came out when i was 19 and being blown away. Doom II, YES!! Doom64, even better!!! But venerable ol' iD has slipped and almost stumbled a bit over the last decade with Wolfenstein not being what it could have and Doom3's less than stellar sales. Oh and out right dropped said ball with Quake(oooh, I feel your hate!). I'm taking a wait an see approach to D4. If Rage is any good I might start getting my hopes up.
DOOM 4 or bust man. The first game i played was DOOM 2 when i was 3 and that has spelled the begining of my gaming life style so stop bsing with rage 2 and bring DOOM 4 with the BFG 9000 complimentary P.S. also a marshan buddies storage locker Spoiler: and another secret end credits, (to all who know what i'm talking about because of noclip FUK you)
I'm liking how they try to keep one trademark game per console generation. It means that each game made will be a significant leap (Doom 2 to 3 to 4, Rage 1 to 2, etc.)
I like this article, when the new technology, LGA 20 11 socket, X79 express chip set comes out, i'm getting it so looking forward to the next generation in gaming! Can't wait to see doom 4, the cinematic effect in doom 4 is suppose to have more than Rage. I want to check that demo out! Good job Carmack, a fan here!
Rage 2 for ps4 and ps3 could be right but i want doom4 and when there at it bring doom 3 HD as long old ones for xbox360 and Ps3 i think fans will buy them as well as me :]
It's been a really really long time since the Doom series showed up.My First FPS was Doom 3.I really hav been waiting for Doom 4.Doom4 rock the show when u launch
id is 1 of my favorite developers. I loved Doom 3 & i will b picking up Rage & Doom 4 when that finally drops.
@TheVGamer *sigh* yes, of course I do. Being well known does not make an arrogant move any less arrogant though, any more than calling someone on it makes someone any more ignorant about who they are.
id! At a time when Rare is nowhere to be seen, id doesn't fail to impress. Can't wait for Rage, and Doom 4 is now totally on my radar. Hope that's out in 2012. Would be fantastic.
Genius guy always think different, far beyond normal people like us :D that's why he could create cutting-edge technology.
Sound about right, am expecting the next gen to kick off around 2013-2014 but if am to over think things i would say with Halo4 due 2012, Halo5 will be released in 2014 and will be a launch tittle for xbox3,Well thats ma prediction/hope/wish
Talk about arrogant. Yeah, lets lay the groundwork for the sequel before the first is even out! If we're lucky we'll be too far along to learn any of the lessons from the first one, and if the first is a bomb, then we're totally screwed!
quake 5 for sure! quake 4 was at least a direction back to the what we quake should be a single player game first, and multiplayer 2nd. too bad they handed it off to an outside dev team. Raven i think. it was the guys who made the "new" wolfenstien and singularity (which was REALLY cool and better than quake 4)
@Gamer_4_Fun yeah not to mention he builds rocket ships in his spare time. for those of you who dont know, he really does!!! He is part of a team that is a contender in the x-prize race. he has turned his made programming skills to rocket engines thrust and direction.
@Boochie yeah you are right. dead space is 1 of my all time favorite games!! I totally forgot about that series in terms of raising not only the horror genre, but lighting and atmosphere (and sound design). I have total confidence in id that doom 4 will be industry changing game. quake 3 and 4 were good games. but HUGE disappointments coming from id. not worried about rage either. I am sure it will be amazing.
