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

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

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

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

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

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.
