Porting quake 2, 3 and 4 to id tech 6


#1

greetings guys

has someone thought about porting quake 2, 3, and 4 to id tech 6, kind regards


#2

The engine for the new doom is not open source, which would preclude developing versions of the quake games for it.


#3

i think it’s only a matter of time until the engine becomes open source. maybe an issue of 2-6 years after the game release. and id should place it on GPL-TK or any other similar license. so by now this thing is perhaps not an option, but maybe in a near future it will be. and if we look at engines by id, a modded version of id tech 3 or 4 still eats less resources then unreal engine and actually looks far much better


#4

I don’t think there will be any more source releases from id without John Carmack there.


#5

Sadly, i don’t think there is THE ID Software anymore without John. And i don’t think we would ever see next Quake.


#6

ID tech4 is the highest we will probably ever see. Would be nice to see the older ones ported there.


#7

So hoping to see the next version of Quake… I been playing all four and hope that there will be at least one more in my lifetime.
