Carmack confirms Rage for iPhone

Written by David Stellmack


Will come to iPhone before other platforms
During John Carmack’s keynote at QuakeCon, he dropped two very surprising bomb shells that really surprised everyone. First, Rage will be coming to iPhone. Second, it will arrive ahead of the PC, Mac, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game.

The news really stunned the crowd gathered to hear what the father of the FPS 3D graphics engine had to say. When Carmack showed Rage running on the iPhone 4 at 60 frames-per-second, those in attendance were said to be showing a serious case of disbelief. (Carmack also noted that while the demo he was showing was running on the iPhone 4, the game would run on the iPhone 3GS, as well!)

In addition, a second Rage title will be released next year that will be a simultaneous release on all platforms, including the iPhone as well as PC, Mac, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. No real news was provided on what this second Rage title might be or include.

In other news, Carmack talked about the Android and the fact that they had not made a decision about porting Rage to that platform. He gave no hint on when a decision might be made about an Android version. It is expected, but not confirmed, that Rage will arrive in early 2011; but as for an actual release date, it is pure speculation at this point.
