Tim Willits Discusses Rage

GamesIndustry.biz has posted a new interview with id Software's Tim Willits. The developer discussed a variety of topics relating to the company's upcoming first person shooter and action racing title, Rage.

Q: So do you think that the projected lifespan for id Tech 5 will be similar to previous iterations?
Tim Willits: No. John has said, publicly, that he feels that id Tech 5 will last a while. Because it's very scalable. He's scaled it down to the iPhone, he feels you can scale it the other way. He doesn't know anything about the next generation of consoles, but he feels that it will be awesome on the next generation of consoles.

Q: You're very much a multi-platform developer now. Does that really penetrate to the core of the company or would you actually prefer to be working on pure PC tech?
Tim Willits: The problem is that the PC market is smaller and piracy is out of control still. Those are the two things that have really moved all developers to be cross platform. Otherwise you're looking at a client-server architecture type game, always online.

People say, the PC market's dead. It's not dying, it's changing. The social aspect of PC gaming is still the richest, but yeah, the user base is small and piracy is out of control.
