“When it’s done” has been id Software’s catchphrase since time immemorial, so – while we don’t like to toot our own horns – we saw this coming the day RAGE was announced. In fact, we’ve had this article ready to go for years, as we’re in desperate need of a real hobby. So, who won the Presidential election? Was it McCain? We have a good feeling about his chances. Also, we’d just like to dedicate some space to our admiration for Tiger Woods. Such upstanding moral fiber from a man who could – if he wanted to – have his pick of the litter. Also, the iPhone? Never gonna catch on. Anyway, here’s id Software’s Tim Willits explaining why RAGE won’t be hulk-smashing its way into 2010.
“Because we haven’t even hit alpha on this thing yet. But we’re working very hard and we’re getting close to that. But it’s important that we get this right. There’s nothing worse than pushing something out before it’s ready. And the great thing about Bethesda and Zenimax is [that] the executive management has the faith in us to give us the resource that we need to do the right game,” he said.
“Because, trust me, it would be horrible if we were to release it and it was bad. So, we’re going to get the resources that we need and we’re going to get the polish that we need.”
All right. That’s all from us. If you see future us, make sure to ask how the 40-story mansion’s doing. Boy oh boy, investing all of our money into HD-DVD stocks is gonna pay off any day now.
