Doom 3 engine to be released soon
Back to index
Those gamers who've been waiting for the Doom 3 engine to be released open source, as promised a long time ago by id Software, shouldn't have to wait too long anymore. In a tweet, John Carmack confirmed that the release is ready to go, awaiting only final approval from lawyers. Running on id Tech 4, the predecessor to RAGE's current engine, Doom 3 introduced quite a few nice features, and its engine will be another option for developers to create games or mods with. The company has historically released its older engines as open source, and this one apparently won't be any different.
