Another one of them cage rattling interviews with John Carmack. I love his candidness. His latest quotable comment is this:
We still think the PC is a market worth supporting, but we’re not making decision around the PC. It’s probably more of the junior partner in the cross-platform strategy, although obviously, our day-to-day development is predominately on the PC.
I’m not surprised at all. He’s just reacting to the market conditions. PC die hards will probably be upset over this, but Mr. Carmack assures us that he’ll continue to support the PC platform:
We certainly expect Rage and the Doom project on the PC. We’re contractually obligated to have Rage on the PC, and I would be stunned if we did not do Doom 4 for the PC. It would just be wrong. Even if it was a marginal business case, we would still do it because it’s the right thing to do.
Put down your pitchforks, folks. id Software is not abandoning you.
