id Software Aims for iPhone

February 25th, 2009 by Arjan Olsder Posted in Platforms: iOS | No Comments »

MTV Multilayer had an interview with the creator of Doom and Quake, Mr. John Carmack. Though the interview kicked off about the Wii, there was also a very interesting bit about id's plans with the iPhone.

John tells MTV that the company is close to finishing two projects for Apple's iPhoneOS. The first is a port of Wolfenstein RPG, which has already been a success on various mobile platforms. The second one is a joint project with a company in Dallas. That title has been developed specially for release on the iPhone. Though the release of that unknown game is still a mystery, John does say that Wolfenstein RPG will be ready in about a month.

John also tells the interviewer that he's playing around with the thoughts of releasing an id Classics line of games. It would kick-off with Wolfenstein 3D, followed by Doom, Quake and other id titles. John is clearly a fan of the platform and expresses his interest in going hands on with the platform himself.

For those that want to pick up the full interview, head over to MTV Multiplayer.
