id Software hasn’t been coy about bringing its major franchises to iPhone, with Wolfenstein 3D Classic already available on the App Store and many more in the pipeline.
Speaking with MTV Multiplayer, id founder John Carmack has been expanding on his previous revelations that Doom RPG, Doom 2 RPG and Wolfenstein RPG are on their way, along with something from the Rage universe and the from-scratch Doom Resurrection.
“There’s no doubt that we’ll go through ‘Quake’ and ‘Quake 2,” he says. “I can probably manage to do ‘Quake 3′ on the conventional iPhone platform, if Apple winds up addressing just a few things in their system software. When you start looking at the 3GS, ['Quake 3'] would not be a problem at all.”
The characteristically forthright Carmack also no doubt perturbed a PR person or two by revealing that Wolfenstein RPG would be available were it not for EA, which is concerned that consumers will confuse that game and Wolfenstein 3D Classic at the expense of sales.
