It looks like id Software is taking the Blizzard/Valve approach to game development with their next project. Earlier today at QuakeCon, John Carmack discussed the closure of id’s mobile games division so they could allocate more resources to AAA console titles, specifically the highly anticipated fourth installment in the popular Doom series, saying “The Bethesda family really is about swinging for the fences. I hope that we do get back to mobile in various ways in the future, but the real aim is blockbuster triple-A titles, and for id that means Doom 4,” said Carmack. After the Doom 3 BFG team is done with their work, they’ll be switched over to Doom 4, so “essentially everybody will be focused on Doom 4 as a project,” he said. In related news, the game will support the Oculus Rift 3D Headset, which has been getting quite a bit of attention by gamers lately, with its Kickstarter grabbing an incredible $1.2 million in donations in just three days.
